Guest’s Comments; Birding Biak

Three of us—two from the US and one from Australia— recently took a two-week trip to West Papua and Papua. We were guided expertly by Monal, who not only knows the birds but shows great care for those on the tour. The last three days were on Biak Island, which held a number of new species for us. Because of the late change, the hotel choice available to us was limited, but was adequate—and right on the ocean! Birding consisted of alternating driving with walking forest roads, which gave great views of special birds: Biak endemics, such as Biak coucal, Biak Scops-owl and Biak paradise-kingfisher. We saw more than a dozen island endemics (monarch, flycatcher, leaf-warbler, white-eye) and five others that likely will be split, as well as numerous parrots, lories, and lorikeets. We had great looks at Papuan frogmouth, and several species of fruit doves and imperial pigeons. Excellent dining was at local restaurants known to Monal and the local guide.
Two of us had traveled with Monal two years earlier, so we knew already how well he operated his tours. Monal and his staff did an excellent job arranging the tour details and truly taking care of us as birding clients. We especially appreciated how well Monal integrated the local guides and drivers into the tours, treating them with respect, which added to the total experience for us. We look forward with great anticipation to the next tour we take with Monal and Sultan Birding Tours. from Mr. Robert N. Wiedenmann” November 2019
