We are bird watchers and bird conservation activists in East Java, Indonesia. We have actively involved in bird watching since 1996. Starting in 2018 we officially launched the Birding East Java (BEJ) under the management of the Petungsewu Adventure company.
For more than 20 years we have done birdwatching in various regions of Indonesia: Java, Bali, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Kalimantan, Papua and North Maluku. Now we are focusing on birdwatching in East Java.
Why East Java? There are many natural conservation areas that become the important habitats for various bird species in East Java. The areas include Baluran National Park, Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, Alas Purwo National Park, Merubetiri National Park, R Soerjo Community Forest Park, Sempu Island Nature Reserve, Ijen Volcano, Mount Arjuna and Hyang Highlands Wildlife Reserve.
Apart from those, especially in Greater Malang, there are many lowland forests which become the habitats of the birds. They include Sumberagung Forest, Gunung Kepiting Forest, Kondang Merak Forest, Tamban Mangrove Forest and Kondang Iwak Forest.
With the long experiences in birdwatching and adventure, the BEJ team will take you to unusual birdwatching spots to observe the endemic Indonesian birds, such as Javan Hawk-eagle, Javan Banded Pitta, Large-tailed Nightjar, Collared Scopsowl, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Rhinoceros Hornbill, and Javan Kingfisher.
The specialty of birdwatching with us is that we will not only guide you to the common locations already known as the main locations for birdwatching, but we will also take you on adventures of exploring the new remote sites in East Java.
We will guide you to the common birdwatching sites well known as the best locations for birdwatching, such as Baluran National Park, Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, Alas Purwo National Park, Merubetiri National Park, and R Soerjo Community Forest Park.
More than that, we will also take you to the unknown locations for birdwatching but have various species of interesting birds. These sites include Malang lowland forest, Mount Kawi, Mount Arjuna, and Mount Kelud Kediri.
