Singapore: Jurong Bird Park (Day 2)

posted by Martin Rubli at 15:38

It's been over six months and people have been making fun of the absence of the rest of my Singapore photos, so here's the next batch covering the second day of our February trip.

The usual biology disclaimer applies: My animal labels might be off by several taxa. :-)

Given that it's in a bird park I would guess it's a Bird of Paradise, but it looks a bit off. :-)

The bird park seems to be very proud of its "world's tallest man-made waterfall". It might also be the world's most boring waterfall.

I was lucky enough to catch this parrot right as he flew through the screen. I should probably carry more lenses on future trips, though.

At the end of the show you even get to take pictures with the falconers and their animals. This one should be a Lugger Falcon.

    The park is one of the best or I just say the only best one in the world. Clean, well planned and a great collection of birds from across the world.
