One day Birding Tour in Bali with Ecosafari Indonesia
Duration : 10 hours
Pickup time : 05 AM (Udayana Kingfisher Eco Lodge or any area around Denpasar)
You will be picked up by Nyoman Martini (our senior guide who has much local birding experience) at 05.00 and direct for 1.5 hours drive to the Batukaru Temple, which represents the God of Mahadewa and his wife Goddess Sanci, Enjoy the birding around the temple then walk down through the forest trail. On the way down, apart from scanning the birds, we will also learn a lot about how medicinal plants grow up in a tropical rain forest used for years by the local people as herbal medicine. This forest is rich with flora and fauna with many singing birds, which are clearly heard.
This is a good trek for those who really want to escape from the crowd and enjoy a day in the jungle. There we can enjoy the birding for around 4 hours for some highlights including White-crowned Forktail, Greater Leafbird, Orange-fronted Barbet, Thick-billed Green-Pigeon, Grey-cheeked Green-Pigeon, Oriental White-eyes, Asian Glossy Starling, Fulvous Breasted woodpecker, Blood-breasted Flowerpecker, Mountain Tailorbird and even the Javan Kingfisher can also sometimes be found,.
Three components are significant to be protected here including water, plants and air. We will enjoy lunch at a local restaurant and enjoy the Jatiluwih rice terraces, then drive back to the Denpasar with a short birding trip around Baru Rice field for Javan Pond Heron, Cattle Egret, Scally-breasted Munia, Sooty-headed Bulbul, Long-tailed Shrike also possibly Javan Kingfisher.
