Late to this thread, but having some interest in this topic the photo looks 
like a Red Bird of Paradise, presumably an immature male as it has those head 
bumps.They can take up to 5 years to get into adult plumage. The species is 
endemic to just two West  Papuan islands, Waigeo and Batanta. Trade in BoP’s is 
a real worry and a possible serious conservation threat of course.
