Birds in Manokwari Lowland Forest

White cockatoo live in lowland and lower montane forest of Manokwari regency in West Papua.
Sulphur-crested Cockatoo
I have organized a lot of birding tours in lowland, lower montane and higher montane forest of Manokwari. From all of the tours, I made pictures of birds and did identification works using field guide book Birds of New Guinea - written by Thane K. Pratt and Bruce Beehler as my main reference. My favorite birding site is Dopi and Mesirrokow forests. It is a lowland forest area of Manokwari. Birds that can be seen this forest are listed below:
