A colorful host of parrots, fruit-doves and an awesome assortment of endemic kingfishers combine with sought-after avian gems such as Ivory-breasted Pitta, the incredible Maleo, Purple-bearded Bee-eater, the remarkable Knobbed Hornbill, Purple-winged Roller, Olive-flanked Hylocitrea (recently placed in its own monotypic family), and an opportunity to watch the extraordinary bird-of-paradise called Standardwing at its display site.
