I did Google it and Amazon have 8 used from $259.99.
I reckon the lending fee would be about
$50 a week!

A pocket-sized book for the highlands is Beehler’s ‘Upland Birds
of NE New Guinea’, a forerunner to his field guide compiled mainly around Wau

I have a copy of “Birds of New Guinea” by Beehler, Pratt and

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!!!

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?
