The beautiful Yellow-bibbed Fruit Dove was readily found alongside the common Claret-breasted Fruit Dove, Torresian Imperial Pigeon and the local race of Spice Imperial Pigeon were also found. Likewise Biak Black Flycatchers prefer more open habitat whereas in forested areas the Biak Paradise Kingfisher is still pleasingly common and we twice managed good views of the skulking Biak Coucal.
