A day at Jurong Birdpark we go… Lets see what Singapore’s famous birdpark is like… At Boon Lay Mrt the full bus brings us to the birdpark’s entrance… Can not miss it with that eye catching blue pillar on the parkplace entrance… It is 10 am in the morning, though many people at the entrance we can get in the park quickly… It seems we just missed the early morning visitor peek… With a park plan in hand it is time to start the tour… 380 birdspecies, so enough to see… The parkplan also discribes at what time the shows are and the birds feeding times… Two shows at noon seem interesting and can do the walk in the park as start…

 

 

 

 

 

First we take a look at the penguins at penguin coast… Its build in a huge wooden boat structure… Somehow the penguins always give a remarkeble feeling… Most of them standing silent looking ahead… One take a dive and is swimming fun to see… Another scractches itself behind the head standing on one foot, fantastic balance!!! We go out walk pass the flamingo pool and the wetlands… Here taking a short cut to Fountain plaza where is the lunch with parrots…

 

 

 

 

 

 

We visit the Southeast Asian birds just across fountain plaza… Amazing jungle look alike area with many feathered friends walking around… Besides the little birds also beautiful pawns walk here… When taking bit of time and patience bird do come very close… Fantastic moment to make a picture… Time to continue our trip to the next spot… Via the Songbird terrace where they have the entertaining lunch with parrots show…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Passing the dinosaur descendants we arrive at the African Waterfall Aviary… The beautiful & colorful replica of an African home in the front lane… With the sculptures of 2 working people sitting in front of the house… Up the lane to the African waterfall entrance… There are restrooms & restaurant here… The fans give refreshing air in this hottest time of the day… After a short rest drink and a sandwich we head forward to discover the waterfall…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Though the valley we walk.. Stream of water floating with the birds flying around… After making few turns left and right the high waterfall catches the eyes… Refreshing and cooling water in this valley of green… Favorite spot for visitors to make a picture… Cannot mis this opportunity… Enjoying the sights here and slowly walk to the waterfall exit… The “Knights of the Skies” show is next on the list… So means making a walk to the Hawk walk… We can view the pelican cove, flamingo lake and the wetlands on the way… Passing the “Birds of Play”, a water playground real fun for kids…

 

 

 

 

 

 

On time for the “Knights of the Skies” show… This show has impressive preditor birds as hakws, owls and falcons… Fantastic to see them fly and hunt the fake prey… The storyteller gives a clear explanation of the birds skills and use in history… The skilled crew make the show an entertaining, educating and amusing preformace.. Everyone dressed in costuums of the middle ages… Fantastic to see the birds fly at the at the end of the show… The “World of Darkness” is on the route… Sounds more scary then it is… Infact different types of owls can be seen here… The “Birds and Buddies” show is ahead…
