Area: 4,497 ha
Topography of this island is hilly with the highest altitude of 210 m asl.
Streak-breasted Honeyeater Meliphaga reticulata is common in this area. Timor Green Pigeon Treron psittacea recorded once (White & Bruce 1986), but unrecorded by Holmes observation (Holmes 1993). Because of very limited records for Timor Green Pigeon Treron psitacea, this island need special attention, although the site still uncertain. Follow-up survey is really needed. Observation by Derek Holmes could not recorded Timor Blue Flycatcher Cyornis hyacinthinus, that reported present on Semau Island (Stattersfield et.al. 1998).
