The 'White-naped Friarbird' (Philemon albitorques) is endemic to the Manus Province of Papua New Guinea. Not a particularly handsome bird - like most friar birds - but it has a very distinct call that you will hear EVERYWHERE on the island. Natives call it after its call 'Chauka'. #PapuaNewGuinea #birds #Birdwatching www.papuanewguinea.travel/birdwatching
Steller's Jay - birds with anything from a few to many white feathers in their plumage are called partial albinos. Birds with large amounts of white are the result of a genetic flaw in both male and female. The reason they remain rare is that both parents must carry the genes responsible for the white plumage.
