Sulawesi and Halmahera are home to a large number of stunning species, many of which are endemic such as this Moluccan Owlet-Nightjar. Sadly, the forests in this part of the world are perhaps more threatened than anywhere else on our planet and many of the species are becoming harder and harder to find. For a selection of other photos from this wonderful destination, have a look at the 2008 tour write up (Pete Morris)
