Seram was the last island to be visited during a three-week tour of
the southern Molucca and Tanimbar islands of eastern Indonesia by our
group of Australian and American birders. Our trip to this part of
Indonesia has been one of the most successful undertaken by any
group. The finding of Blue-eared Lory on Seram was icing on the cake;
I am unaware of any group encountering this species on previous
visits. To see the lory in addition to Black-lored Parrot - along with
a host of tricky species such as Purple-naped Lory, Buru Honeyeater,
Lesser Masked Owl , Lazuli Kingfisher, Buru Green-Pigeon, Buru Thrush,
Fawn-breasted Thrush, Tricoloured Parrotfinch, Grey-backed Tern and
Rufescent and Grey-hooded Dark-eyes - was an extraordinary experience.
Many thanks to our Indonesian operator, Ceisar Riupassa (email -
 for his excellent work in organising this
trip, and his amiable and highly capable assistant, Vinno.See here for
