Mount Hagen

Next day morning we went to see the Lesser bird of paradise. It took around 2 hours from the lodge to reach this place and I was able to see 2 males and 4 female birds.The next 2 days were for Blue Bird Of Paradise and King of Saxony. We were able to see both the birds and for our luck we also sighted the Stephanie's Astrapia, which was a bonus sighting. I managed to capture some long distance shots of this bird.

It took around 1 hour for the flight to reach Mount Hagen. Our Lodge owner had come there to pick us. She was very friendly and loved the company of Indians. Mount Hagen is at higher altitude when compared to POM. So, we are here for the high altitude Birds of paradise. Most of the birds we were able to find around the lodge itself. It includes Ribbon-tailed Astrapia & Brown Sicklebill. There were other native birds like Brehm's Tiger Parrot and other flycatchers.
