Birding in Raja Ampat of West Papua

Palm Cockatoo in Raja Ampat
Here is the picture of Palm Cockatoo (Probosciger aterrimus). I saw the bird while I was traveling in Raja Ampat. I also saw Pacific Swallow, Radjah Shelduck, Pinon Imperial Pigeon, Pink Spotted Fruit Dove, Papuan Blyth's Hornbill, Olive-backed Sunbird, Starling, Island Kingfisher and Wilson Bird of Paradise and Red Bird of Paradise.

Wild Flowers in the Forest
When I was climbing a steep cape in Fish Lagoon, I saw beautiful flowers. They were orchids, one that I recognized was the Giant Tiger Orchid (Grammatophyllum speciosum). Another one is a terrestrial orchid that I still haven't been able to identify. Here is its picture:

If you know its name, please, inform me by text message to my email or whatsapp number below.
As a tourist guide, I provide rainforest birding tours for visitors who want to go birdwatching and snorkeling in Raja Ampat, Manokwari, Numfor and Sorong regency.  The duration of the tour is between 3 days to 2 weeks depending on how many places visitors want to visit.
