In recent years Indonesia has been competing with the Andes as the region giving rise to the biggest number of undescribed bird species (naturally, all of them endemics). But since Indonesia has more than 1,700 bird species (and that many islands, too), why is this guide dealing only with 1,400?

Indonesia 1761 5. Almost every 4th bird is endemic in Indonesia , a large country spread over several huge (Borneo is the 3rd, Sumatra the 6th and Sulawesi the 11th largest island on the planet) and 17,500 smaller islands, not to mention over two zoogeographical regions. Colombia 1959 bird species 2. Brazil 1847 sp. 3.

And what does it tell us, other than the obvious “head for South America” or perhaps Indonesia? 1401-1600 sp: Ecuador, Bolivia; Indonesia. It may be slightly impractical to focus on big countries such as Brazil or Indonesia. I discovered this cover-photo map somewhere at the BirdLife International’s website.

The demand for palm oil in the US and Europe, is threatening to wipe out orangutans in Indonesia. Indonesia is the world's top producer of palm oil, and prices have jumped by almost 70 percent in the last year. The demand for palm oil is rising in the U.S. and Europe because it is touted as a "clean" alternative to fuel.

While shooting the premiere episode of National Geographic Channel’s new series, Beast Hunter , host Pat Spain visited the Ragunan Zoo in Jakarta, Indonesia to visit a seven-year-old Orangutan named Pinky. Too cute, right?! Pinky sure does love Pat!

However, around 90 % of Indonesia’s population is Muslim and the cage bird trade is a huge, huge problem. Birds finches Indonesia mystery birds' .” The idea that this bird was caught, its feathers dyed red to make it nicer for a religious ceremony, and later released, sounds some kind of plausible.

So–the book covers islands that belong to the Republic of Indonesia and to Malaysia. But, it doesn’t cover all or Indonesia or all of Malaysia. Does the fact that this guide doesn’t include all of Indonesia or Malaysia mean that a birder going to these countries will have to invest in multiple field guides?

In fact, the best known member of the family, Central America’s aptly-named Resplendent Quetzal , looks less like Michoacán’s trogons than, say, Africa’s Narina Trogon , or the Red-naped Trogon of Indonesia. Honesty requires that I confess to having seen none of these species. Wikipedia has been used.).

One of their upcoming articles will focus on the effects of the bird pet trade in Indonesia, but if readers from 10000 Birds give at least $1,000 in the crowdfunding campaign, they will add an additional bird conservation story to their roster! . Gifts large or small would make a huge difference.

This is a bit of a quick post, but there is a very good reason for this: it was written back in October and then pre-scheduled since I’ll be in Indonesia again from the end of October until the day before this post goes up. It really ain’t that much of a unique selling point of the West Palaearctic region.

Pierce Onthank, the president of an oil and gas company, was charged in January with illegal possession of a primate for keeping a siamang, a type of gibbon that is native to rain forests in Malaysia and Indonesia and can weigh up to 30 pounds and stand 3 feet high.

When split, they would retain the scientific name Porphyrio porphyrio. Black-backed Swamphen. The sister taxon to the Mediterranean birds occurs on Borneo and the western Indonesian islands.

But he’s got stiff competition, including peers working to save Tree Kangaroos in Papua New Guinea, Sumatran Orangutans in Indonesia, and Snow Leopards in Pakistan. Which makes him a formidable candidate for the prestigious prize.

1) Not surprisingly, the Pink-necked Green Pigeon is widely distributed in Indonesia, where the batik technique was invented. It is small and light – about 80 to 100 grams – which allows it to perform some amazing acrobatics in and on reeds. (1)

The Wink and Heidrich paper ( Molecular systematics of Owls (Strigiformes) based on DNA sequences of mitochondrial cytochrome b gene , PDF), as the title indicates, looked at the mitochondrial cyt b gene across about a third of living owls and found Snowy Owl sister to Great Horned Owl, concluding, “the taxonomic consequences would be to merge (..)

Distributed across a broad swath of territory that includes India’s Himalayan foothills, Thailand, Indochina, peninsular Malaysia and western Indonesia, this species occurs in moist or semi-evergreen forests that may include secondary growth and degraded habitats in its native range. Common Hill Myna’s range in South Florida.

A lot of destinations were mentioned, with Central and South America leading the way, New Guinea, Indonesia and Australia appearing only at the middle of the list, and African countries (South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and Madagascar) lagging at the end of the list.

I was seeing all sorts of small to very small songbirds with yellow bellies and a greenish back in the dense foliage of Indonesia’s trees. “In failure lies opportunity”, and luckily I noticed this while still being in Indonesia. I was shocked!

” Birds Indonesia prinias' I have never seen anything like this in a bird species, and am not aware of any other species that show such a colouration. What about you? Do you know anything about it, or are aware of other bird species with such a striking colouration? “It’s charging !!!”

Adding to their mystique is the remoteness of their home, the undeveloped and rarely visited islands of New Guinea and eastern Indonesia. To birdwatchers they are a difficult pilgrimage that few don’t want to attempt at some point, but few manage. There are, however, two species that are more accesible than the rest of the family.

Indonesia (1615 / 1603). The first figure comes from the BirdLife International – in some cases, these seem to be seriously outdated. Hence I added the second figure from the Fat Birder – often more up to date. Taking as a rule, the higher figure is more accurate. The Oriental realm. Malaysia (702 / 781). Thailand (925 / 948).

The Olive-flanked (or Yellow-flanked) Whistler ( Hylocitrea bonensis ) is endemic to to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, where it lives inconspicuously in montane forests. This unique bombycillid is much-sought by birders visiting the region, and our own Redgannet encountered a flock in Saudi Arabia a couple of winters ago.

The Common Tailorbird , Orthotomus sutorius, is a small warbler whose range extends from India to southern China and down into Indonesia. It is common, mostly in the lowlands, but can range as high as 5000ft. It is found in most habitats with thick cover and can often be found in urban parks and gardens.

The 28 odd species of this genus are found in the Sunda (the islands of Indonesia, Malaysia and the southern bit of Thailand) and the Philippines, and are named for the inescapable (in this region anyway) Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, he of the founding of Singapore fame.

They have expanded their range through Indonesia and into Australia and is found in post breeding dispersal as far north as South Korea and Japan. In the east, this species can be found along the east coast of Africa, the Nile Valley,and into parts of the middle east and India and southeast Asia. There are two main subspecies, the nominate B.

It is an adherent to fresh water lakes, canals and swamps from India through East Asia, Indonesia and New Guinea. The Yellow Bittern is a tiny heron, substantially smaller than the Butoroides (Green and Striated) species and slimmer too. The photos in this post are of three individuals.

They belong to the same species like those found back in Europe, Sus scrofa – which inhabits a belt stretching from northern Africa and Europe all the way to Indonesia, but a different subspecies, S.s. Back on dirt tracks by a Desert Wheatear decorated bush (bellow), to spot five or six Wild boars disappearing among the bushes.

Let’s take Singapore’s Changi International Airport as an example; it is a huge hub airport with large numbers of people passing through in transit to Australia, Indonesia and south-east Asia. Perhaps I have missed my calling. Anyone with more than a couple of hours to kill could easily make a quick birding foray out from the airport.

Borneo is the third largest island in the world; politically it is divided amongst three countries–Malaysia (Sabah and Sarawak), Indonesia (Kalimantan) and the sultanate of Brunei. I’m already looking up birding tours of Borneo and pricing airfares. Not a great place for a family vacation, though I think Duncan will disagree.
