BIRDING ATTENBOROUGH’S PARADISE – Papua New Guinea


7 – 18 July 2011


By Duan Biggs



Papua New Guinea is indeed a birder’s paradise! Thirty-four birds-of-paradise live on the island of New Guinea, of which thirty-one can be found in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The island of New Guinea is home to a whopping 399 endemics. Together with awe-inspiring scenery, endless jungles, and fascinating highland societies that only made contact with the outside world in 1930, this makes Papua New Guinea a must-do destination for any avid birder.
Day 1. Port Moresby to Mount Hagen

Arrival in Port Moresby after a 48-hour haul from Johannesburg, and a few hours in the airport waiting for the flight to Mount Hagen. After everything I had read about Port Moresby I was pleasantly surprised by the airport, which had many ATMs, air-conditioning, and even wireless. The departure lounge for the domestic flight on Air Niuguini to Mount Hagen was certainly rather crowded, but our plane was a new and spunky ATR. En route to take off, Whistling Kite and Intermediate and Eastern Cattle Egrets were a nice start to the trip list. Our arrival in Mount Hagen was just as a thunderstorm was clearing – and on the runway we saw our first Papuan Harrier for the trip. We climbed into a new Hilux with friendly Rondon Ridge guides, Raymond and Joseph, and John the driver, and made our way up the bumpy track to Rondon Ridge. En route we had our first New Guinea endemic – Common Smoky Honeyeater. Also recorded were Brown Cuckoo-Dove and Pacific Swallow.


Day 2. Kaip and Kumul Lodge, Mount Hagen

A 5:00am departure saw us heading for the display tree of Raggiana Bird-of-paradise at Kaip. It was a grey and rainy morning – but nevertheless the male was out and displaying in the rain. What a way to start the day! There were other goodies in the area, despite the rain. Great Woodswallow and Grey Gerygone were two further endemics, and Brush Cuckoo and Collared Sparrowhawk were also welcome.

We then travelled towards Mount Hagen, and despite the ongoing rain we could record some more great birds: Mountain Swiftlet, Singing Starling, Red-capped Flowerpecker, Yellow-breasted Bowerbird, Slender-billed Cuckoo-Dove, White-shouldered Fairywren, Hooded Mannikin, Black-headed Whistler, and Ornate Melidectes. These were followed by the more widespread Glossy Swiftlet, Long-tailed Shrike, and Willie Wagtail, and soon after by Papuan Grassbird and Grey Whistler. The interesting mix of New Guinean avifauna was demonstrated by the next two species we found, White-bellied Cuckooshrike (common in Australia) and Pied Bush Chat (a species I was familiar with from the Ganges plains of India).

Our next stop was that gem of a birding spot near Mount Hagen – Kumul Lodge. Walking into the lodge grounds we were immediately treated to a host of species, including Friendly Fantail, Large Scrubwren, and White-winged Robin. And that was even before we got to Kumul’s legendary feeding table. Here New Guinea spectaculars awaited us in the form of Ribbon-tailed Astrapia, Belford’s Melidectes, Rufous-naped Whistler, Brehm’s Tiger Parrot, Archbold’s Bowerbird (alone in its genus), and a female Crested Satinbird. Island Thrush and Common Smoky Honeyeater weren’t bad either.

A late afternoon birding session at the Mount Hagen golf course produced only Sacred Kingfisher and Willie Wagtail amidst ongoing rain. But the road back to Rondon Ridge from Mount Hagen proved more productive, and sightings included Ornate Melidectes, the ubiquitous Australian species Rainbow Lorikeet, Hooded Mannikin (better views this time), and Brown Quail.
Day 3. Baiyer Valley

Joseph, our local birding guide, suggested that we go for a 4:00am departure to the Baiyer Valley, where his wife lives, which is at a lower altitude. Joseph had seen some spectacular birds there, and we were keen to get out of the highland rain. And Joseph was right – the birds were mind-boggling, starting off with an Eastern Barn Owl in the grasslands approaching the village just at dawn. Upon reaching Joseph’s village we headed into the local forest, with a handful of local hunters taking us to the birding sites. Not long and we had a grove of trees with displaying male Lesser Bird-of-paradise showing off. This was followed by Red-capped Flowerpecker, Loria’s Satinbird, Superb Bird-of-paradise, Grey-green Scrubwren, and the rare and hard-to-find Yellow-breasted Satinbird. I had last seen Black-winged Monarch in Australia’s Cape York Peninsula in 2009, so it was good to see it again. Wattled Ploughbill was calling, but unfortunately didn’t show. Other species included Northern Fantail, Red-breasted Pygmy Parrot, the impressive Metallic Pigeon, the gorgeous Beautiful Fruit Dove, White-bibbed Fruit Dove, and Red-collared Myzomela.

Unfortunately, this area has become rather unsafe in the meantime; therefore Birding Ecotours will not be taking birders to this awesome birding site in the foreseeable future, due to security reasons.
Day 4. Around Rondon Ridge

On a walk after breakfast into the forest surrounding the lodge with another Rondon Ridge local guide we added Slaty Robin, Papuan Scrubwren, Yellow-billed Lorikeet, and the extravagant King of Saxony Bird-of-paradise to our list. Also recorded was a group of petite Orange-crowned Fairywrens, Black Fantail, the striking Black-breasted Boatbill, and another Loria’s Satinbird. The Canary Flyrobin, which showed well, is a gorgeous little bird. Next up were New Guinea Thornbill, Papuan Parrotfinch (heard only), Lesser Ground Robin (heard only), Grey-streaked Honeyeater, Black-throated Robin (heard only), and New Guinea Friarbird (a split from Helmeted Friarbird of northern Australia).

An afternoon walk in search of Blue Bird-of-paradise delivered Yellow-browed Melidectes, Hooded Mannikin, Black-fronted White-eye, and Long-tailed Shrike.

Day 5. Travel to Karawari Lodge

After an early breakfast we headed back down the mountain to catch our charter flight to Karawari Lodge on a catchment of the legendary Sepik River. The flight went over rugged, mountainous country, with dense, green jungle stretching as far as the eye could see. Indeed, if there are new species of bird-of-paradise or other birds to be found – they may well be lurking in this inaccessible terrain.

Shortly after arrival at Karawari’s grass runway we added Pied Heron and Masked Lapwing to our list. We transferred by boat to Karawari Lodge – what an idyllically situated and exquisite lodge! From the restaurant/bar and from each of the rooms one has expansive views over the forested Sepik plains.

Karawari Lodge is in the lowlands, and it was hot! Nevertheless, after an after-lunch breather, we braved the humidity and the heat and birded around the lodge grounds. First up was a pair of Boyer’s Cuckooshrike, shortly followed by Black Sunbird, Plain Honeyeater, and a pair of Yellow-faced Myna.

After the walk we got on a boat and headed upstream. Species seen included Pacific Black Duck, Whistling and Brahminy Kites, White-bellied Sea Eagle, Red-cheeked Parrot, Papuan Spine-tailed Swift, and Uniform Swiftlet. Our expert and enthusiastic local bird guide, Chris. then took to us to a lowland jungle garden. What a productive spot! The noisy and brightly-coloured Eclectus Parrot entertained us overhead. We enjoyed delightful views of Black-capped Lory and were later joined by a group of Edward’s Fig Parrots, Northern Variable Pitohui, and Black-browed Triller. The Columbidae family was represented by Zoe’s Imperial Pigeon, Orange-fronted Fruit Dove, and Orange-bellied Fruit Dove. The Palm Cockatoo is a distinctive species, but unfortunately we only had a fly-by view. Ivory-billed Coucal was heard calling, and Red-capped Flowerpecker zipped by. White-eared Catbird was also calling, but unfortunately we did not get a visual on it.

Dusk is often a very productive time along rivers in forests, and here at Karawari it was no different. A bird-of-prey highlight was Long-tailed Honey Buzzard soaring above, followed by another bird of prey – Variable Goshawk (split from Grey Goshawk of Australia). We were not yet done, and Collared Imperial Pigeon, Papuan Spine-tailed Swift, and Blyth’s Hornbill also showed themselves in the late afternoon light. The birds kept coming, and we managed to add Glossy-mantled Manucode and Buff-faced Pygmy Parrot to our list, before returning to Karawari Lodge for a well-deserved dinner.


Day 6. Karawari Lodge and Sepik tributaries

We made an early start to a display tree for the aptly-named and rather bizarrely spectacular Twelve-wired Bird-of-paradise. Chris took us straight to the tree – and there he was in all his glory in the dawn light! Next up: King Bird-of-paradise, a species we were very eager to see. To find it we entered a patch of dark, swampy, mosquito-infested jungle. Fighting off the mozzies was worth it – because after some effort we managed to get scope views of this magic little bird-of-paradise.

After the King Bird-of-paradise, we headed downriver towards the main Sepik River – Chris was keen to find us Victoria Crowned Pigeon and was planning to do all he could to find it, but unfortunately to no avail. However, our trip by boat towards the Sepik was soon rewarded with the attractive Lowland Peltops and the cosmopolitan Whiskered Tern for our trip list. As the day heated up, the going got slower, though. Hooded Butcherbird was heard only, but we managed sightings of White-bellied Sea Eagle, Pacific Baza, and Great-billed Heron (common here). Chris and his crew treated us to a delightful lunch on the boat before we headed back to the productive lowland jungle garden. This spot today was not as productive as it had been the day before, but it did deliver Meyer’s Friarbird, Streak-headed Honeyeater, and another Palm Cockatoo. Blyth’s Hornbill was seen in the late afternoon from near Karawari Lodge.

Day 7. Karawari Lodge to Tari

Before breakfast we took another walk around the lodge gardens at Karawari and managed to score great views of Red-flanked Lorikeet and Rufous-bellied Kookaburra, as well as further sightings of Red-cheeked Parrot, Mimic Honeyeater, and Black Sunbird. After breakfast it was back to the grassy airstrip at Karawari Lodge for a flight to Ambua Lodge at Tari. We flew over more rugged, seemingly untouched jungle – miles and miles of it.

Ambua Lodge is a beautiful, expansive lodge that overlooks the Tari Valley, but unfortunately there was a fair bit of construction taking place. Although the construction may have disturbed the peaceful ambience, it did not, however, affect the great birding the lodge grounds offer. Our first afternoon session produced a female Blue Bird-of-paradise, Lawes’s Parotia, Princess Stephanie’s Astrapia, Superb Bird-of-paradise, Grey Gerygone. and Rufous-naped Whistler. A noisy and busy group of Tit Berrypeckers proved a delight; they were frequently present on the lodge grounds during our stay. Other species recorded included Great Woodswallow (resident in Ambua), Glossy Swiftlet, Mountain Swiftlet, Belford’s Melidectes, Yellow-billed Lorikeet, and Marbled Honeyeater.
Day 8, The Tari Gap and the legendary Wigmen

We started birding on the famous Tari Gap road, and the birding was as cracking as we thought it would be – despite lots of construction traffic, associated with the Liquid Natural Gas and other developments in the area. Species we found here included White-winged Robin and Crested Berrypecker (heard only), followed by cracking views of a Mountain Owlet-nightjar at a roost site. Next up we encountered more Tit Berrypeckers, Yellow-billed Lorikeet, the startling Blue-capped Ifrit (at the entrance to the owlet-nightjar track), Mountain and Glossy Swiftlet, and Papuan Scrubwren. A montane forest bird party delivered Sclater’s Whistler, Fan-tailed Berrypecker, Belford’s Melidectes, Ribbon-tailed Astrapia, and Common Smoky Honeyeater. Later a group of Mountain Firetails were found higher up the Tari Gap road.

We returned to Ambua Lodge for breakfast and then headed out to the Tari Valley for a cultural tour with the legendary Huli Wigmen. The fact that the strongly clan-oriented, one million-strong societies on the PNG highlands only made contact with the outside world eighty years ago makes for a globally-unique cultural experience. Birds-of-paradise form an integral part of their cultural wear and of the identity of these clans. Our cultural tour was not without some birding highlights, however, and we added Stout-billed Cuckooshrike to our list in the first village we visited. In addition, our lunch stop delivered the impressive Papuan King Parrot.

We birded the gardens of Ambua Lodge in the late afternoon and recorded Black-breasted Boatbill, Black Pitohui, Black Butcherbird, Brown Sicklebill, and more sightings of birds seen on earlier days.


Day 9. The Tari Gap

We started out early at the start of the owlet-nightjar track, where we hoped to find Crested Berrypecker, which we had heard calling there earlier. Alas, no berrypecker yet, but we did add Mottled Whistler, Grey-streaked Honeyeater, and Brehm’s Tiger Parrot. We birded our way up the Tari Gap and added further sightings of Grey Gerygone and Brown Sicklebill, followed by a pair of attractive Black-bellied Cuckooshrike. Next up were Dimorphic Fantail, Chestnut Forest Rail (heard only), and White-bibbed Fruit Dove. Finally at ‘seven corners’ we had magnificent views of the gaudy Crested Berrypecker, and also ticked Black-throated Honeyeater. Then we walked into the nearby forest on a trail, heard Forbes’s Forest Rail, and saw Mountain Mouse-warbler and Papuan Logrunner. We also had fleeting glimpses of a Papuan Lorikeet. At the top of the Tari Gap we were able to add Australian Pipit and Pied Bush Chat – but sadly no Alpine Pipit.

We returned to the Tari Valley to a stakeout for Greater Sooty Owl, which proved cooperative. Also at the site were Superb Bird-of-paradise displaying and White-shouldered Fairywren. Our next stop was the Teacher’s College in the Tari Valley for Salvadori’s Teal and Torrent Flycatcher – but we had no luck with either.
Day 10. The Tari Plateau and the Tari Gap

We started at the so-called ‘bowerbird tree’ on the Tari Plateau above the Tari Gap, and it proved a superbly productive spot! Here we had MacGregor’s Bowerbird, Regent Whistler, brief views of a group of Black Sittella, a stunning Black-throated Robin, Rufous-backed and Grey-streaked Honeyeaters, Crested Berrypecker, and grand views of Great Cuckoo-Dove. We were treated to further views of King of Saxony Bird-of-paradise (fairly common in the gap) and Canary Flyrobin. Species we saw later included Island Thrush in the grassland and Brown Quail.

We then returned to ‘seven corners’, where we added Brown-breasted Gerygone and the brightly-coloured male of Red-headed Myzomela. In the surrounding forest we encountered a male Mountain Firetail, Papuan Logrunner, Mountain Mouse-warbler, and another Ribbon-tailed Astrapia.

Next on the agenda was a return visit to the forest around the owlet-nightjar trail. Here we added Painted Tiger Parrot and Mid-mountain Berrypecker, as well as our first good view of Rufous-backed Honeyeater. Further birding in the forest produced Large and Papuan Scrubwrens and Papuan Logrunner, before the splurge of new New Guinea specials continued with Rufescent Imperial Pigeon and Buff-faced Scrubwren. Before returning to Ambua Lodge for a well-deserved lunch we also added Grey-streaked Honeyeater, Rufous-naped Whistler, and Lesser Ground Robin (heard only) to our day list.

After lunch we travelled up into the Tari Gap for our last birding session there, which started with tremendous excitement at a soaring Papuan Eagle. Yet another visit to ‘seven corners’ at 4:00pm proved productive. We had fabulous views of the striking red and black form of Papuan Lorikeet, followed by the delicately exquisite Plum-faced Lorikeet, Mountain Honeyeater, yet another Brehm’s Tiger Parrot, and a superb Ribbon-tailed Astrapia. Across the road from the owlet-nightjar trailhead a King of Saxony Bird-of-paradise male displayed, and a male Garnet Robin showed itself in the late afternoon light. Back at the lodge we had cracking views of Slaty Robin between the chalets.


Day 11. Tari to Port Moresby, Pacific Adventist University

A final morning’s birding around Ambua Lodge produced Blue Bird-of-paradise, Lawes’s Parotia, Brown Sicklebill, and Great Woodswallow. It was wonderful to get a last look at these fantastic birds. Then we transferred to Tari airport, from where we caught a domestic flight to Port Moresby.

Upon arrival in Port Moresby we were picked up and taken straight to the Pacific Adventist University campus, a secure and lovely birding location. Around the gardens we added Grey-headed Mannikin and Fawn-breasted Bowerbird to our list. The Dusky Myzomela seemed quite different from the one in north-eastern Australia, being a rather different subspecies. It was also great to find Rufous-banded Honeyeater in fringing lake vegetation. Other species included Australasian Grebe, Green Pygmy Goose, Pied Heron (many), Little Black Cormorant, House Sparrow, Rock Dove, White-breasted Woodswallow, and Singing Starling. Finally we got onto Spotted Whistling Duck with the help of one of the local guides. Also present were Plumed and Wandering Whistling Ducks, Masked Lapwing, Black-backed Butcherbird, and Nankeen Night Heron.

We then transferred by vehicle and boat to the idyllically-situated Loloata Island Resort, where we spent the night. At Loloata there were Greater Crested Tern, Whimbrel, and banded sea snake (not a bird, but certainly worth mentioning).


Day 12. Varirata National Park and departure

Varirata National Park lies in the mountains above Port Moresby, and it is great to have such an ace birding location so close to PNG’s capital city. With our local guides we started from Loloata at 4:00am (the disadvantage of the island is the early starts). Birding got off to a mind-boggling start with about ten male Raggiana Bird-of-paradise flying around above our heads in a canopy display area. Even though we had been birding this amazing country for eleven days, this sight was certainly a major highlight! After the Raggiana the birding highlights continued, starting with cracking views of Rufous-bellied Kookaburra at a lookout point, followed by Barred Owlet-nightjar at a roost and Pink-spotted Fruit Dove nearby. Hooded Butcherbird was calling but proved elusive. Our next stop was a picnic point, where we were treated to a visual spectacle in the form of Moustached Treeswift. Other species included Yellow-bellied Gerygone (heard only), Papuan White-eye, Chestnut-bellied Fantail, the immaculate Brown-headed Paradise Kingfisher, and Purple-tailed Imperial Pigeon. We also managed to get views of Hooded Pitohui, Southern Variable Pitohui, and Black Cuckooshrike. Birding around Port Moresby provides the opportunity to see a number of species that occur only in New Guinea and in Australia’s remote Cape York Peninsula. Two such specials we got onto were Yellow-billed Kingfisher and White-faced Robin. We also had Spangled Drongo, and a Spot-winged Monarch caused some excitement, as did a Glossy-mantled Manucode.

Time was ticking, however, and we had flights to catch. So now we had time only for a brief stop at the entrance gate and some short stops in the great-looking habitat on the way back to Port Moresby. At these sites we added Rusty Pitohui and had further views of Brown Oriole, Glossy Swiftlet, Boyer’s, Black-faced, and White-bellied Cuckooshrike, and Black-backed Butcherbird.

Then it was off to Port Moresby’s airport and our flights home.
