Tour module 2 days birds of Paradise Nimbrokan
Your driver takes you to the very modest (no running water) home-stay of Pak Jamil.
From the guesthouse it’s only a twenty minute walk to the place where the birds of Paradise gather and show their mating dances.
With a little bit of luck and a little bit of planning, it is possible to see all four species of Birds of Paradise in one day. And if your luck is even a little bit more, you have the chance to see one of them displaying; dancing in the tree to attract the ladies. The male birds use all their feathers and dancing qualities to get in the spotlight. It is a natural phenomenon of the highest grade! The Twelve-wired Bird of Paradise and the Lesser Bird of Paradise display between five and six o’clock in the morning. And because of the fact that the display trees of the two species are in the same area in Nimbrokan, you can see them in the same morning. The King Bird of Paradise gets active around seven when the sun becomes visible, while the Pale-billed Sicklebill does his best to attract the opposite sex just before dusk. But it is wildlife, so no guarantees. But everybody who decides to spend some days in the forest has a very good chance to see the four species, which are all very different.
