Usually I started from Susnguakti which was the lower montane forest of Arfak. I and the tourists whom I guided spent 3 to 4 days in a simple base-camp.
|Magnificent Riflebird (Ptiloris magnificus)|
We walked through the forest to watch Lesser Birds of Paradise, King Bird of Paradise, and Magnificent Riflebird, Glossy Manucode and a lot of other birds. Sometimes, we saw Pink-spotted Fruit Dove, Brown Cuckoo Dove, Imperial Pigeon, Common Paradise Kingfisher, Blyth's Hornbill, and Hooded Pitta.
|Lesser Birds of Paradise (Paradisaea minor)|
|King Bird of Paradise (Cicinnurus regius)|
This lower montane forest of Arfak range was also a great place to watch Hooded Butcherbird, Rufous-bellied Kookaburra and Yellow-billed Kingfisher.
|Western Parotia (Parotia sefilata)|
|Magnificent Bird of Paradise (Diphyllodes magnificus)|
