BOP Bonanza...(Papua New Guinea): July/Aug 2010

After a break in Oz, I found myself back in the "land of the unexpected", otherwise known as Papua New Guinea, where 24 species of birds-of-paradise came to us in our three weeks on the island. Here are some of the best: Raggiana BOP (bottom); Superb BOP (middle); and last but not least the extraordinary Ribbon-tailed Astrapia, which was voted the best bird of the trip (top).

Off on tour in Australia now, and will update from there soon...
