As a matter of fact, Raja Ampat is also a nice place for birdwatching. There are two species of Birds of Paradise in Raja Ampat, i.e. Wilson Bird of Paradise (Cicinnurus respublica) and Red Bird of Paradise (Paradisaea rubra). These paradise birds are sexually active in the mornings and in the afternoons. Male paradise birds perform courtship dance to attract females. A female paradise bird will select one whose performance and feather is beautiful for mating.

Snorkeling and Birding Buddy
As a tour guide I offer birding and snorkeling trip for anyone who is interested in visiting Raja Ampat and wants me to be a snorkeling or birdwatching buddy. I can accompany solo traveling visitor or organize tours for a group of visitors consisting of 3 to 8 people or even more.

We can extend your birding tour to other parts of West Papua such as Klasow valley of Sorong regency and Arfak mountains of Manokwari where you could explore tropical rainforest of New Guinea island in search of Lesser Birds of Paradise, King Bird of Paradise and Northern Cassowary.
