Singapore Birding II

Back on the main island of Singapore after experiencing tremendous tropical rainfall & thunder, Kim Seng, our wonderful guide, spotted an owl in a tree by the car park in Pasir Ris Park.

a Buffy Fish Owl (Mareiuomimizukuマレーウオミミズク)
looks wet and miserable, just like us!

a very vocal Collared Kingfisher (Aoshobinアオショウビン)

an Indian Cuckoo (Segurokakkohセグロカッコウ)
very quiet - we couldn't have noticed without Kim Seng!

Black-naped Oriole (Kohraiuguisuコウライウグイス) - one of the very common birds in Singapore

a pair of White-bellied Sea Eagles (Shiroharaumiwashiシロハラウミワシ)

Actually, they were harassed by a pair of House Crows (Iegarasuイエガラス) and the crows won the game.

Kim Seng's hawk-eyes spotted an Asian Koel (Onikakkohオニカッコウ) just sticking his head out of the thick foliage.

Red Junglefowls (Sekishokuyakeiセキショクヤケイ) - a male in the tree, 2 females on the ground

Little Egrets' tree! (Kosagiコサギ)

a Striated Heron (Sasagoiササゴイ) concentrating on fishing

We were lucky to see another Oriental Pied Hornbill (Kitakasasagisaichoキタカササギサイチョウ) fly and perch just in front of us.

The park was deserted because of the weather, we think, but luckily for us, the birds were very vocal and active:)
