Tropical Birding Tour in Manokwari and Sorong
After guiding tourists in Arfak mountains, I continued my trip to Sorong city where I visited hill forest of the regency. From the short trip, I saw Helmeted Friarbird, Yellow-faced Myna, and Olive-crowned Flowerpecker. I was able to take some pictures of Yellow-bellied Sunbird too.
If you are interested in taking a tropical birding tour with me as your guide, you need to fly to Manokwari city or Sorong city (which is the main gate to Raja Ampat).
I could meet you at the airport or at the hotel where you stay and organize your birdwatching trip to the forest.
Birdwatchers usually bring binoculars, spotting scope and telephoto camera. When I went birding in the forest of Sorong, I brought my Fujifilm HS50EXR, with its 42× zoom that was equal to 1,000 mm, I was able to take picture of birds in distant trees. For binoculars, I highly recommend the Swarovski EL 8.5×42 mm or other ones that are equipped with ED lens and Bak4 prism glass.
