Lesser Birds of Paradise
|Lesser Birds of Paradise (Paradisaea minor)|
Susnguakti Forest of Arfak Mountains
In Susnguakti forest of Arfak mountains, visitors can watch these birds. To watch male birds of paradise perform mating dance in the branches of trees, we have to wake up early in the morning at 05.00 After that we need to have tea or coffee and make some preparation for long walk through the jungle to reach the birding ground of the paradise birds. They usually dance from 06.00 to 09.00. We need to watch them with binoculars. They are very beautiful. They are also active in the afternoons from 15.00 to 17.00.
Susnguakti forest is located in lower montane area of Arfak mountains, it is also the natural habitat of other birds of paradise such as Magnificent Riflebird, and King Bird of Paradise. - by Charles Roring
