Birdwatching in Raja Ampat: red bird of paradise

One morning, very early, 3 of us went with a guide on a birdwatching trip. Purpose: look at the Red bird of Paradise, at sunset (mating time).
First, not so easy to spot them. These guides have really good eyes, and it took a long time before we managed to spot them as well.
As soon as the sun started to rise, the male birds became very active in showing off , to make sure the female bird picked them.
