Thanks, Monal and his team for the wonderful birding experience there. I managed to get all of my target kingfishers at Tangkoko, plus the red-bellied pitta (now known as Sulawesi Pitta) too.
Trip report birding in Tangkoko and Gunung Mahawu, North Sulawesi Indonesia From March 14 to 17 2014 I did a 4-day birding trip with Sultan Tours in the extreme northeast corner of Sulawesi. Since time was limited we birded in Tangkoko (2,5 days) and the surroundings...
I only saw this male on one occasion, and I particularly like the action and the habitat of this image, which was one of the highlights of my recent trip to North Sulawesi well arranged by Monal Capellone and his team from Sultan Tours!
Birding in Halmahera is harder than in other countries. You really have to find your own bird. Monal and his team makes it much easier. Thanks Monal for being part of this pitta mission.
Monal and I had a great seven days on this island, and I hope I can return someday to see those few endemics I missed this time. You can see photos of many of these birds on Monal’s website and get inspired to visit Sulawesi, too!
What a wonderful seven days birding in Sulawesi, thanks to Monal, Anes and Sukri. My seven days with Sultan Bird Tours was just brilliant and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much to Monal, Anes and Sukri.
