Wallacea is a scatter of thousands of islands east of Borneo and west of New Guinea and Australia.
Seated at the collision point of Earth's two great biogeographical regions, Australasia and the Orietnal region, it contains a mind-boggling mix of birds from both sides, including hordes of parrots, honeyeaters, pigeons and a generous sprinkle of exotic kingfishers together with big-eyed tarsiers and colugo-like gliders.
Mr Yong Ding Li and fellow enthusiasts were lucky to spend some extended time exploring these regions and its remarkable birdlife in May and July of 2006/2007.
Come and hear Mr Yong as he shares slides on the biogeography, birdlife and birdwatching experiences in Halmahera, Sulawesi, Timor and Flores.
