Dear All ;

By this a greeting from Denmark.

I do hope to come on a birding tour to the PACIFIC, and already
at this early stage of my preparation of my forthcoming PACIFIC
birding tour, I would kindly ask, if anybody please can supply
me with information about good birding sites in the PACIFIC -
as FIJI, NEW CALEDONIA ( NC ) and TAHITI , etc  - as I would
like to do a general birding in combination with my hope to see
some of the PACIFIC / POLYNESIA parrot species, such as :

Red Shining Parrot ( Prosepeia tabuensis )  -  Fiji.

Mashed Shining Parrot ( Prosopeia personata ) - Fiji.

Collared Lory ( Vini solitarius )  - Fiji.

Red-thorated Lorikeet ( Charmosyna amabilis )  - Fiji.

Horned Parrot ( Eunymphicus cornutus cornutus ) -  NC.

Ouvea Parrot ( Eunymphicus cornutus uvaeensis ) - NC.

New Caledonia Lorikeet  ( Charmosyna diadema ) - NC

Deplanchi's Lorikeet  (Trichoglossus h. deplanchii ) - NC

Massena Lorikeet ( Trichoglossus h. massena ) - Vanuatu

Palm Lorikeet ( Charmosyna palmarum ) - Vanuatu

Blue-crowned Lory ( Vini australis )  -  Samoa - Cook - Fji.

Rimatara Lory ( Vini kuhlii )  -  Cook Islands and Kiribati.
