|Red-necked Phalarope in winter plumage|
To my surprise, from the field guide book the Birds of New Guinea (written by Thane K. Pratt and Bruce Beehler), I found that the bird's name was Red-necked Phalarope (Phalaropus lobatus). The bird lives in Artic region of North America and Eurasia during the breeding period. In winter time, this small bird fly for thousands of kilometers and land in the interior region of Tambrauw mountains.
The regency of Tambrauw is located in the vogelkop region of New Guinea. Most of its land is still covered by tropical rainforest. It is the natural habitat of hundreds of species of birds including birds of paradise such as Lesser Birds of Paradise, Magnificent Riflebird, King Bird of Paradise, Twelve-wired Bird of Paradise, Magnificent Bird of Paradise, Glossy Manucode, Western Parotia, Black Sicklebill and etc.
