Kingfishers of Paradise...(Papua New Guinea): 2 July 2010

Further to my post below, here is a photo of the BROWN-HEADED PARADISE-KINGFISHER encountered during the afternoon in Varirata NP. The species is simply stunning, but in a country brimming with stunning birds it rarely gets mentioned in the trip highlights at the end of the tour, which baffles me, I mean look at it! The species is endemic to Papua New Guinea and confined to the southeast of the country.
