NOTE : Arguably Papua’s premier birding region, the Arfaks support 9 endemic bird species (and a further 11 species with restricted ranges), of which the most famous must be the Vogelkop Bowerbird – the world’s greatest avian architect. Males of this amazing species build a roofed house-like construction at the base of a sapling tree, inside and in front of which they place colourful berries and flowers, and insect parts, to attract females. You will also see the exciting Western Parotia (or Six-wired Bird of Paradise), males of which perform a bizarre side-step dance on the floor of their display courts, while their flank plumes are spread to form a circular skirt, and their six wiry antenna-like nape feathers directed forwards. Two other endemic birds of paradise are commonly seen here at higher altitudes (almost 2,000 m) – the little-known Arfak Astrapia and Long-tailed Paradigalla (rediscovered in 1989), as well as the more widespread Black Sicklebill with its 80 cm-long tail. Lower down, the Magnificent bird of paradise may be seen on his court, displaying, in sequence, his iridescent carmine back, dark green breast shield, and sulphur-yellow cape, before jerkily dancing up and down a vertical sapling, whilst quivering his cocked sickle-shaped central tail feathers. Up to seven species of robins may be seen on the mountain trail, also more species of birds and if you are lucky, a Feline or a Mountain Owlet-nightjar
