Welcome to New Guinea Birds
In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence Robert Lynd
I was lucky one day, and become part of silence in Papua New Guinea. From the very first moment, I fell for this country and its avifauna. New Guinea is home for hundreds of beautiful birds living in rich and exquisite forests, high mountains and deep valleys. The breeding land- and freshwater avifauna that adorns Papua with a nearly mythical status, comprises more than 700 species. Here I would like to show you their beauty and fascinating behavior. Therefore I developed New Guinea Birds. New Guinea Birds are resource for the identification of all species living in mainland of New Guinea, surrounding islands and Solomon Islands.
I am recently PhD. student at Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia, and I am also employed at the Institute of Entomology, Academy of Science of the Czech Republic. I work mainly in Papua New Guinea, and I am very interested in Australian, Papuan and Melanesian avifauna. Please find more about my projects and publications on my web pages. In 2012, I received EOL Rubenstein Fellow award that allowed me to work on this project about complete databaze of birds of New Guinea.
