Susan Myers is in Halmahera, Here she sends some bird pictures from Sulawesi.  I got the job to re-post the images from a poor internet connection near Pucallpa in Peru. I shall fix the layout of the post on my return to Lima on the 31st.  UPDATE: Found an internet cafe in Puerto Inca and managed to fix the post. Enjoy.  Gunnar

Susan Myers writes. I’m in the techno-wilderness and I’m writing my first blog from Halmahera and sending this on my iPhone. My thumbs can’t stand too much of this typing so this is the best I can manage! Here are some of my photos of endemics and others from Sulawesi. This island has an astounding number of endemic species but the forest is disappearing rapidly. Anyway, hope you enjoy the photos.

Awesome Susan. I loved to be there and agree that is the real wilderness. Not only in the field but if you think about the accommodation options in Foli. LOL! Enjoy your stay and stay safe.

Wow! What a great collection of specialty birds! My favorite is the Satanic Nightjar, although I preferred its older name of Diabolical Nightjar (which is not only more poetic, but reflects the scientific name of Eurostopodus diabolicus).
