The new header is not the best photo, but considering how rare and shy these birds are it’s pretty decent.
I’ll try to update you on our trip to Komodo/Rinca soon- including fabulous photos of wild horses in Flores.
And also my latest trip to Halmahera, Timor and Sumba.
Loads of things have happened since Satriya and I set off to Rinca in January. Almost all of February was spent in Bali. In March Lena came to visit and in April I went to Halmahera, Timor and Sumba with two friends.
Mehd and Satria are on their way to Flores – for World Parrot Trust.
They are long expected by Bird Life, Komodo.
To come to these islands you have to go by a chartered wooden boat (pinisi) from Labuan Bajo in western Flores. The news from the harbour is that the weather is bad with strong wind and they will likely have to spend a few days researching Flores instead.
Travelling in Indonesia will give you flexibilty sooner or later, if you didn’t have the gift of patience and flexibilty when you arrived.
A few photos from Baliem Valley in central Papua added this evening.
There will be more photos from this destination in a month or so.
Just added some orchid pictures.
Most of them are taken in Baliem Valley, central Papua. Altitudes from 2000-3200 meters.
We offer Guided Tours to many different birding destinations in eastern Indonesia.
We start and end our tours in Bali, as it makes a nice and relaxing base.
Please also chek out our photos in the top menu from travels around Indonesia!
While travelling with us you will have the chance to see Lowland Peltops, Pesquet’s Parrot Palm Cockatoo, Western Parotia, Magnificent Bird of Paradise, Pale-billed Sicklebill, Wilson’s Bird of Paradise and many more.
