ContactColo-I-Suva Forest Park is a delight and is only a five minute walk away. The early morning observer may well be the first to greet the unafraid Scarlet Robin and be scolded by the Spotted Fantail. The sounds of civilization fade as the bush deepens, and soon the twitter of the mixed flocks of Golden whistlers, Blue-Crested Broadbills, Slaty Flycatchers and Spotted Fantails take over, punctuated occasionally by the raucous screech of the Sulphur-Breasted Musk Parrot or the Resounding “woof” of a barking Pigeon.
Fiji white-eyes, Vanikoro Broadbills, Orange-Breasted Honeyeaters, Lesser Shrikebills, and other small birds make their way noisily through the bush. Only the experienced twitcher will catch the glimpse of the shy Fiji Warbler in the undergrowth but all can hear their melodious duet. Golden doves too, are more often heard than seen as their abrupt "ÿap" is delivered with the skill of a professional ventriloquist.
