the Belford's Melidectes aggressively defended the flowers of the terrestrial root parasite Mitrastemmaa from the Ornate Melidectes. One species, the Long-bearded Melidectes, is considered to be threatened with extinction due to habitat loss, and it is therefore listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. The Bismarck Melidectes is considered to be near threatened due to forest clearance on New Britain. Many of the other species of melidectes are restricted range species, occupying small global ranges; in many cases single mountain ranges. More

Belford's Melidectes etc were visiting all day. The lodge has a system of trails which you can wander by yourself. They are not marked, but the area is not so large you could get lost, although I tried hard to do this. Actually many of the birds can be seen along the entrance driveway. More

Belford's Melidectes, Common Smoky Honeyeater, and occasionally a male Regent Whistler—how dapper is he! The normally secretive Rufous-naped Whistler pottered to and fro, providing a never-ending scene of fascination. Cameras continued to click, the rain puttered on, and another break saw a White-winged Robin at the nest. Much to everyone's delight, a speckled dasyure—one of New Guinea's elusive carnivorous marsupials—arrived at the feeder and foraged assiduously for maggots buried in the table of mosses that now covered the feeder.
