This is now a right time for you to travel to Manokwari for bird watching or other adventure tours or trekking trips in the tropical rainforest of Arfak mountains. Why I say it is the right time? Because the red fruits (pandanus conoideus) that have been the staple food for the birds of paradise are nearly ripe. Various species of birds of paradise can easily be watched on the slopes of the Arfak mountains when they land to eat the grains of the fruits. In addition to the paradise birds, travelers may also have the chance to watch spotted catbirds (ailuroedus melanotis) that eat banana fruit, hornbills, sulphur crested cockatoos, and hawks that often fly among the branches and trees of the mountains.
