Birding Papua New Guinea

New Britain Island Birdwatching

New Britain is a geological hotspot that holds many endemic species and contributes significantly to the avian diversity of the New Guinea region.  A birdwatching tour to Papua New Guinea is not complete without a visit to the Bismarck Archipelago.

Walindi offers the best location for exploring the north coast of New Britain and the Bismarck Sea in comfort.  Tours are offered to nearby rainforests and small islets in Kimbe Bay for a host of exotic Bismarck and New Britain endemics. Exciting species include the Heinroth's Shearwater, Golden Masked Owl, New Britain Pitta, Nicobar Pigeon, Blue-Eyed Cockatoo, twenty pigeons and doves, nine kingfishers including the Black-Headed Paradise Kingfisher and a host of little known passerines.
