East Papua, Birding on Biak & Numfor

East Papua, Birding on Biak & Numfor



Easy birding in the islands of the Geelvink Bay. Loads of endemics, some of them easy, some of them hard!

Key species:Megapodius-geelvinkianus

Long-tailed Starling, Biak Black Flycatcher; Biak Paradise-kingfisher; Biak Lory; Geelvink Pygmy-parrot; Biak Scops-owl; Biak Monarch; Biak Coucal; Biak Scrubfowl; Biak Gerygone; Biak White-eye; Numfor Paradise-kingfisher.

Birding locations:

Most birders just visit Biak, attracted by the easy access and large number of endemics that can be seen in a short space of time. Very few birders visit Numfor, largely as it is a lot more time consuming to get there for just one endemic as a reward (but it’s a good one!).

  • Biak

All the endemics of Biak can be seen within a couple of hours drive of Biak town. The habitat in the vicinity of Biak town is a mix of cleared land and scrub and patches of degraded forest.

Probably the best area to visit is to the east of Biak town near the village of Warafri. here a surfaced road cuts through forest and scrub and numerous footpaths branch off into more intact forest s short distance form the road. The birding is good along the road itself and along any of the footpaths. This area is pretty reliable for most of the endemics, including Biak Scops-owl, and is where Biak Monarch and Biak Scrubfowl is most regularly seen. Probably the only endemic it is not good for is Biak White-eye which seems to prefer more open scrubby areas.

A second site to try is closer to Biak Town, accessed by taking a left turn off the road to Warafri (see map). This is another surfaced road that cuts through about 5km of mixed scrub and degraded forest. It is here that Biak White-eye is more common, and the site also holds Biak Coucal, Biak Gerygone and Biak Black Flycatcher. It is also a good place to visit in the evening when lots of parrots and pigeons are flying around. Biak Monarch has also been seen here once.

If you’ve got longer to explore on Biak it may also be worth heading further east from Warafri where there is more quite intact looking forest and some strange flooded forest areas and lots of mangrove. You could also try driving to the north of the island where more extensive tracts of intact forest still remain and where Victoria Crowned-Pigeon can still occasionally be seen.

  • Numfor

No details yet. Have you been birding here? Would you like to add some details? Email us or post your advice below as a comment.

Access, accommodation & timing:

Many of the airlines flying between Jakarta and Papua stop over at Biak (Garuda, Merpati) so it is a convenient place to visit on either the way in or out. It is also pretty easy logistically, and most, if not all, species can be seen within 2-3 days. For these reason it also make a nice starting point for a trip to Papua as you can get into the swing of things before visiting sites that are logistically more challenging! It is also a good place to make your obligatory visit to the local police station to arrange a ‘Surat Jalan’ for other places (for more information on Surat Jalan visit here).

To get around you need a car. You could simply hire a taxi from Biak Town or there are a couple of local guys that know the birding sites, including Pak Rustan (+62-852-444-93000) a local minibus driver that knows the sites but not the birds, and Benny Lesobar info@discoverpapua.com that knows a bit of both. The are lots of hotel options in Biak Town. Many people stay at the Arumbai Hotel in town (www.arumbaihotel.com) as it is convenient.

Numfor is a harder spot to get to. There are occasional flights from Biak, but their availability and schedule changes frequently. Best bet would be to check at the airline offices at Biak airport to find out what options exist when you arrive. Numfor is also served by overnight ferries from Biak 2-3 times a week, but again the schedule changes frequently and the only way to get reliable information would be to visit the ferry port in Biak Town and check.

Biak and Numfor can be visited year round but expect rain showers at any time.

East Papua, Jayapura, Birding at Nimbokrang

East Papua, Jayapura, Birding at Nimbokrang



Ptilinopus magnificus, Wompoo Fruit Dove, Walik Wompu


Hot, sweaty, mosquito-infested lowland forest and swamp. Crawling with birds and easy to access.

Key species:

Northern Cassowary; Pale-billed Sicklebill; Blue-and-Black Kingfisher; Brown Lory; Twelve-wired Bird-of-Paradise; Shovel-billed Kingfisher; Victoria Crowned Pigeon; King Bird-of-Paradise; Blue Jewel Babbler; Brown-necked Crow; Hook-billed Kingfisher; Vulturine Parrot; Papuan Hawk-owl; Lesser Bird-of-Paradise; Brown-collared Brush-turkey; Greater Black Coucal; Papuan Nightjar; Grey Crow; Black-sided Robin; Lowland Peltops; White-eared Catbird; Wompoo Fruit-Dove; Coroneted Fruit-Dove.

Birding locations:

Nimbokrang is the name of an old transmigration project site, in which farmers form other parts of Indonesia were encouraged to open up land in more under populated parts of the archipelago. The result is an area of open farmland, much of it overtaken by scrub, surrounded by large areas of intact lowland forest and swamp forest. Nearby the land rises and areas of low hill forest can easily be accessed. From a base in Nimbokrang there are lots of options for birding.

  • Around Nimbokrang

The most famous location is ‘Jalan Korea’ a former logging road that is now unused by heavy traffic. This trail runs to the west of Nimbokrang and any local person would be able to direct you to it. Birding is good all along the trail and many side paths head off from the main track. Often these side trails are raised board walks for the first few hundred metres. To the west of Jalan Korea the land stretches out into a huge area of swamp forest that can only be accessed on foot, and even then its hard going in mud. Nearer to Nimbokrang is a smaller patch of forest that can be easily accessed on foot from the village. This has a foot trail cutting through it and both the forest edge at the start of the trail, and the trail itself, are great birding.

The birding is similar at all sites near to Nimbokrang, and here can be found many species. For some, like Northern Cassowary, Victoria Crowned Pigeon and Brown-collared Brush-turkey, a trip into the swamp forest west of Jalan Korea is probably the best bet, but both species can occasionally be seen in the small patch of forest next to Nimbokrang itself. Twelve-wired BoP and Pale-billed Sicklebill are most commonly seen from the side trails from Jalan Korea, as is Blue-and-Black Kingfisher, Brown Lory and Brown-necked Crow. Hook-billed Kingfisher can be heard calling at many place but can be seen at the edge of the small forest patch. This is also where Papuan Hawk-owl has recently been seen.

  • Km8

This is the name given to a site on the road away from Nimbokrang to the south. Here the land rises into low hills and a different range of birds can be seen. There are a few options of places to look and taking a local guide is the best way to find them! It is here that the best spots for Shovel-billed Kingfisher, Purple-tailed & Zoe Imperial Pigeon, Salvadori’s Fig-parrot, Yellow-bellied Longbill, Green-backed Gerygone and Golden Myna are found, and Papuan Nightjar can be seen from the road at dusk. Dropping down into the valley to the east of the road gives you more chances at Victoria-crowned Pigeon and is good habitat for Blue Jewel-babbler and Hooded Monarch. There are also sites for King BoP nearby and occasionally Vulturine Parrot can be seen, although frustratingly it is more commonly heard calling distantly.

Access, accommodation & timing:

Getting to and from Nimbokrang is pretty easy. It is only around 2-3 hours drive from the airport at Sentani by taxi, and can be done by bus also. If this is the first place you visit in Papua then the police station near Sentani airport is a convenient place to pick up your Surat Jalan (for more information on Surat Jalan visit here).

There is an excellent local guide in Nimbokrang, Pak Jamil, and the best bet is to hook up with him. The best way to contact him in advance is by text/sms message to his mobile phone (+62 852 5433 2796). He speaks and understands some English, so as long as you keep the messages simple he should understand.

There is not much in the way of hotel accommodation in Nimbokrang and many people simply pitch a tent in Jamil’s garden. Alternatively if your group is small it may be possible to stay inside Jamil’s house. Jamil’s wife can provide food, so this is one site where you don’t need to do all your shopping yourself!

Getting around locally is most efficient by motorbike. This can either be on the back of Jamil’s, or his assistant Pak Dance’s, or you can hire a local bike and rider in the village.

East Papua, Birding at Wamena & Lake Habema

East Papua, Birding at Wamena & Lake Habema



The high mountains of Papua. Awesome scenery and some awesome birding to match.Lophorina superba, Superb Bird-of-paradise,  Cendrawasih Kerah

Key species:

Salvadori’s Teal; Snow Mountain Quail; Chestnut Forest-Rail; Dusky Woodcock; Goldie’s Lorikeet; Mountain Kingfisher; Macgregor’s Honeyeater; Crested Satinbird; Papuan Grassbird; Greater Ground-Robin; Lesser Ground-Robin; Alpine Robin; Wattled Ploughbill; Northern Logrunner; Papuan Whipbird; Blue-capped Ifrita; Torrent-Lark; Splendid Astrapia; King-of-Saxony Bird-of-paradise; Superb Bird-of-Paradise; Brown Sicklebill; Lesser Melampitta; Archbold’s Bowerbird; Alpine Pipit; Mountain Firetail; Snow Mountain Munia.

Birding locations:

The Wamena & Lake Habema area is superb for birdwatching. A great number and variety of species are present, including some pretty special birds. Most people visiting aim for the Lake Habema track and/or the Ibele trail as these are among the most accessible locations. For the adventurous there are undoubtedly many more sites to be discovered.

  • Lake Habema Track

From Wamena, at around 1,600 m, this track climbs up through forest to Lake Habema at the tree line at 3,300 m. It is navigable by 4×4 in a bumpy ride of 4-5 hours. The track passes through a range of habitats and altitudes much of which is good for birding, and different habitats and altitudes support a different range.

The first good roadside forest appears at around 2,500 m above the last village. Here there is a roadside hut that can be used for a camp. The forest is rather degraded near to the road but this at least makes it quite good for seeing birds like parrots and this is a good area for Goldie’s Lorikeet. In order to see another sought after speciality of this altitude, King of Saxony Bird-of-Paradise it is probably more reliable to drop down into the undisturbed valley to the north via a number of small indistinct trails that descend. A rocky stream bed can be followed along this valley and King of Saxony BoP display in the tall trees above the stream. Other good birds in this area (both along the road and in the valley) include Blue-grey Robin, White-breasted Fruit-Dove, Papuan Mountain-Pigeon, Madarasz’s Tiger-Parrot, Papuan Boobook, Stout-billed & Black-bellied Cuckoo-shrike, Lesser Ground-Robin, Rufous-naped Whistler, Lorentz’s Whistler, Slaty-chinned Longbill, Mountain Peltops and Superb Bird-of-Paradise.

Moving higher up on the trail the forest changes in character to dry ridge top forest with scattered pandanas palms. This is great habitat for Brown Sicklebill, Yellow-billed and Orange-billed Parrot, Belford’s Melidectes and Lorentz’s Whistler. This is also the habitat to look for Archbold’s Bowerbird and birds have been seen around a small pond about half way along the track. Splendid Astrapia are also present in this area. Higher up still, within the dry ridge forest before the trail descends slightly towards Lake Habema is a great place to look for some of the high mountain specialities of the region, including Sooty Melidectes, Mountain Robin, Macgregor’s Honeyeater-of-Paradise, Crimson Firetails and Greater Ground Robin.

The track next descends to the plateau of the Habema valley, with the lake visible in the distance. Soon after the descent there is a small hut on the left, known to some (but not all!) as ‘Pondok Tiga’ (“Camp 3”). This is a great place to stay for a few days as from here it easy to access a range of good habitats, including the main track back towards Wamena (as above), the grasslands around Lake Habema itself (more below), and the start of the famous Ibele trail. This trail drops away to the north close to Pondok Tiga. The first section (200m) is a fairly open grass and scrub clearing, from there the trail enters dwarf mossy forest for around 1km, then reaches as small stream and continues down. The first section of this trail, the clearing and the mossy forest, abounds with birds including Macgregor’s Honeyeater-of-Paradise, Northern Logrunner, Chestnut Forest-rail, Wattled Plougbill, Blue Ifrita, Sooty Whistler, Crested Bird of Paradise, Lesser Melampitta, Torrent Lark (on the stream), White-winged Robin, Brehm’s and Painted Tiger-parrot. New Guinea Woodcock and Archbold’s Nightjar are also regularly seen around the clearing, and Greater Ground-robin has also been recorded here.

A trip across the grasslands towards Lake Habema is also a must, to pick up Salvadori’s Teal on the lake and Papuan Grassbird, Snow Mountain Partridge, Snow Mountain Munia and Alpine Pipit in the grassland. A strange isolated population of Australian Kestrel is also found here.

  • Ibele Trail

While some birders opt just to stay near the main Wamena-Lake Habema track, others opt to walk the Ibele trail back to Wamena. This trail starts as indicated above, and the first section makes for great birding. The trail follows the stream for a distance, making birding quite hard, but eventually verges right and enters nice forest for birding again. At this lower altitude birds seen regularly include Black Sitella, Loria’s Bird-of-Paradise, Garnet Robin and Blue-gray and Black-throated Robins, Mountain Mouse-Warbler, Black-breasted Boatbills and Lesser Ground-Robin. After this section the trail reaches a hut in a clearing at a place known as Yabogima that many birders use as camp. The Yabogima area is worth a stay of a night or two as the forest nearby supports Brown Sicklebill, King-of-Saxony Bird-of-Paradise, Archbold’s Bowerbird, White-breasted Fruit-Dove, Papuan Mountain-Pigeon, Papuan Lorikeet, Brehm’s Tiger-Parrot, Great Wood-Swallow and Mountain Peltops.

Below Yabogima good condition forest soon runs out, to be replaced by orchard groves and finally open fields near the village of Habema. Any patches of degraded forest are worth a look however as these lower altitudes support a different ranges of species that includes Superb Birds-of-Paradise, the distinct Papuan race of Golden Whistler, Black-breasted Munia, Short-tailed Paradigalla, Mountain Kingfisher Torrent Flycatcher and Ornate Melidectes.

  • Near Wamena

If you have a day or two to kill around Wamena it is worth getting a car or bike ride out of town. One site that birders often visit is the glamorous looking Baliem Valley Resort. This hotel is about 40 mins drive from Wamena and both the approach to it through wet grassland, and the area around it with scrub and a small patch of forest made for quite interesting birding. Here can be found Black-breasted Munia, Golden Whistler, Ornate Melidectes, Buff-faced scrub-wren and Great Woodswallow. The marshland is also a good place to try for Lewin’s Rail and Spotless Crake, and Papuan Harrier.

  • Trikora Trek

For those bent on adventure, and the pull of one of Papua’s most elusive endemics, the Snow Mountain Robin, a trip to the upper slopes of Trikora may appeal. Snow Mountain Robin lives on high scree slopes between 4000 -5000m. The start of the trail to Trikora is near Lake Habema and from there it is up, up and up. The round trip takes 3-4 days and apart from the robin probably wont get you any species that you can’t see more easily around Lake Habema. But it will get you the robin, and you wont see that around Lake Habema!

  • Descent from Wamena to the north

For some really un-chartered birding there is now a half descent road that goes from Wamena down to the lowlands to the north. This doesn’t yet join up with any other road network, so it may best be treated as a round trip down and up again. The road is alleged to pass through good forest for much of its distance, and the range of altitudes passed through should ensure the birding is varied and rewarding. If anyone tries this route please post some details back here!

Access, accommodation & timing:

Wamena is accessed by air from Jayapura (Sentani Airport). There are numerous flights a day and if the views are clear it is a spectacular journey.

Almost all birders hoping to birdwatch around the Baliem Valley hook up with a local guide outfit. This is the most advisable thing to do as the logistics and bureaucracy involved in getting to places like Lake Habema, or the Ibele trail are quite complex, and camping is really the only accommodation option. There are several guiding options that will take care of you, fix up cars, porters, tents, food etc. but none of them come cheap. Wamena and the Baliem valley is an expensive place. Several options that people use regularly, and how to contact them, are listed below. A good guiding outfit will quote you an inclusive figure for what you are asking for, and not include hidden costs during the trip, they will also be able to take care of the permission to use the Habema trail, which usually involves a good relationship with the army and payment of the appropriate fees.
