    Black bird from Baliem Valley, Papua

    Hi, This photo was taken from a long distance in August 2007 at an elevation of more than 2400 m. I estimate the size to 18-22 cm. No song was heard. I really can't fit in to any of my books. Appreciate any suggestions.

    Whistler from the Arfak mountains, Papua

    I took this shot when I visited the Arfak mountains in Papua 2005, for me it looks like a Regent Whistler (Pachycephala schlegelii) but I am not 100% sure as in this photo the belly of the bird is yellowish and not orange. Can this be a Golden-backed Whistler (Pachycephala aurea)? Regards, Mehd.
