The tropical rainforest of West Papua is very rich of birdlife. As a tourist guide, I often guide visitors to lowland and higher montane forests. We travel to various areas in this province to watch and take pictures of birds of paradise and other tropical birds. In the past, I used Nikon Coolpix P500 and Fujifilm HS50EXR. Now I use Canon 200D with Tamron 150-600mm lens.

In this slideshow, I reused the photographs again and added them with my newest pictures. After adding transitional effects and instrumental music to the slideshow, I published it on youtube.
Birds play very important role in the ecosystem of rainforest. They disperse seed, they provide fertilizer through the poops that they release everyday and they do pest control by eating insects, small mammals and reptiles in the forest.
Birding or birdwatching tourism in West Papua grew well before the Covid-19 pandemic. It stopped suddenly when government did not allow foreign tourists to travel into Indonesia. Government plan to allow foreign tourists to visit this country again in 2021.
I hope that the above slideshow of Birding in West Papua will attract interest of anyone who watches it so that he or she will be interested in traveling to this beautiful island.
