Slideshow of Birds in Arfak Mountains of Manokwari

Here is a short slideshow of some of the birds that can be watched in Arfak mountains.

I used Canon 200D with 150-600mm Tamron G2 lens and Fujifilm HS50EXR to make the above bird photos.
For nature lovers and avid birders, Arfak mountains are very good destination not only for watching birds but also for seeing beautiful scenery and unique culture of the indigenous Papuan people.
There are two big lakes in the mountain range i.e. Anggi Giji and Anggi Gida. They are located at around 2,000 meters above sea levels. Colorful flowers can be seen growing around their slopes.
