Birds in the highland of Minahasa

Chestnut Munia
I was traveling in the highland of Minahasa last week. I visited Tomohon, Sonder, Kawangkoan, and Langowan to explore their surrounding forests. I planned to bring birding visitors to the region. During my birding tours, I saw several species such as Sulawesi Drongo, Scaly-breasted Kingfisher, Collared Kingfisher, Olive-backed Sunbird, Yellow-sided Flowerpecker, Sooty-headed Bulbul, Slender-billed Crow, Chestnut Munia, Scaly-breasted Munia, Grey-cheeked Green Pigeon, Sulawesi Scops Owl, Cattle Egret, and a lot more.
I also had the opportunity to speak with local farmers who make palm sugar, and with ones who own fish, and pig farms.
For birding tour that I offer in North Sulawesi, I can include some additional trips to the volcanic crater of Mount Mahawu or to Lake Tondano. I can organize scenic and cultural trips to places where local farmers in North Sulawesi traditionally make palm sugar, farm tools, and earthenware.
Visitors who are interested in taking the tour could come as a solo traveler or as a group of 2, 4 and up to 8 participants to share the cost of traveling. For further info about the trip, please, contact me (Charles Roring) by email to: leororing@gmail.com or by whatsapp to: +6281332245180.
