Palau, Micronesia December 30, 2005 - January 2, 2006

  • We walked behind and to the right of the picnic area and found a Palau Ground-Dove foraging around. A bit farther down this path we came upon the nest area of Micronesian Megapodes and saw two birds, one walking around an open area. Despite the rain we also saw Palau (Mangrove) Flycatcher, Palau Fantail, Dusky and Caroline Island White-eyes....Gary and Marlene Babic report.

Micronesia April 2004

  • From April 2 to April 23 I birded several Micronesian islands as an add-on to a Papua New Guinea trip. I saw 109 species, including 10 introduced species, plus accipiter sp. I had 51 lifers, including 3 introductions. Most species can be found readily in the right habitat, with some exceptions, notably the Ground-Doves, Scrubfowl, cicadabirds, and Mariana Crow....Dave Klauber reports or

Where to watch birds in Australasia & Oceania 
Nigel Wheatley: Buy from or

  • The fourth guide in a series covering birdwatching sites in the great continents. It describes almost 150 sites in detail and many more in passing. It's primary aim is to help birders make the most of their trips, detailing the endemic and "special" birds to be found at each site as well as the more common and "usual" species. Countries are treated alphabetically, with all the practical information required to make the most of a trip and to avoid wasted time. Included are detailed maps and line drawings

A Field Guide to the Birds of Hawaii and the Tropical Pacific
H. Douglas Pratt, Phillip Bruner, Delwyn Berrett: Buy from or

  • Pratt, Bruner, and Dickinson have produced a superb field guide completely covering all the islands of the tropical Pacific from Hawai'i west through Micronesia. This is a true field guide: it gives the field marks of every species, notes problems in identification with special emphasis on distinguishing similar species, and wastes no space on matters not related to identification.

Birds of the Solomons, Vanuatu & New Caledonia
Helm Field Guides: Buy from or

  • Situated in the Southwest Pacific, this region boasts a colourful and intriguing range of birds. Of the 362 species covered, 117 are endemics. The colour plates in this guide which is primarily intended for field use depict every species, showing plumages, races and colour morphs, and there are 340 colour distribution maps. The facing-page layout, with colour plates opposite the relevant species descriptions, makes at-a-glace reference easy for anyone interested in the birdlife of the Pacific
