G’day Des,


I have a copy of “Birds of New Guinea” by Beehler, Pratt and Zimmerman, published by Princeton University Press in 1986. It could be hard to get hold of as it took me quite a while to find a copy. Perhaps if you “googled” the title you may find one of the bookstores with a copy. If you get totally desperate I might consider lending my copy!!!

Hi All,


My wife and I are going to the highlands in August and would welcome suggestions for field guides for

this region or for PNG in general?
