Indonesia Trip Day 8 - Saturday 29th July 2017
Sulawesi with Mike Nelson from Bird Tour Asia.
The first part of our 6 week Indonesian trip was birding the island of Sulawesi.
On the morning of Saturday 29th July we left Sendy Guesthouse at 5.00 am to bird Lore Lindu National Park again. We birded until 11.30 am and the went back to the guest house for lunch and a rest during the heat of the day. We were meant to go out again at 3.30 pm but couldn't go out because of a torrential downpour until 4.30 pm.
We stayed out to see Great-eared Nightjar and go back for 6.00 pm.
The best birds of the day were Sulawesi and Spot-tailed Goshawk, Maroon-Backed Whistler, Scaly-Kingfisher and Crimson-crowned Flowerpecker.
