Jurong Bird Park

Posted in singapore by chrisau on October 24, 2008

This was the first time in my life to go to Jurong Bird Park, despite been in Singapore for almost a decade. It was my company’s retreat and I thought it’s a good idea to share some pics with everyone. Anyway, we didn’t explore the entire park as it was raining and we only got half a day. Enjoy the pics! πŸ™‚

Here’s the entrance….

I simply loves the above two portraits of the owl. The trainer was holding it on his arm and we allowed to take shots with it. When I saw the trainer walking with the owl, I quickly grab the opportunity to take the pics.

Here’s one of the shows in the park. Above is a parrot carrying a two dollar note from a volunteered audience and flew back to the stage, and later flew to the audience to return back. So clever!!

Here’s an African vulture, it indeed looks fierce and majestic!

As above is the flamingo pond. There are a variety of breeds and colors. Some are white, black and red. The red ones looks attractive in flocks!

Manage to catch a shot of a small ostrich !

As above is a place where you can get closely to the birds and feed them. They just flew around you, rest on your shoulders and arms. I love some of the close shots and portraits I’ve taken. Seems like this is the only place I can take close shots of birds. Anyway, I ‘kena’ beaked by one of the birds for being mischievous, as I forcefully tried to let it rest on my arms…..Β  😦

Another rare species of birds….there’s still a lot of pics in my camera but too bad, I can’t post all here!

Ahhh…….not forgetting what I’m having for breakfast at the bird park…. hash brown, toasts with cheese and ham and freshly brewed coffee.yummy!! πŸ™‚
