The Aviary Kingdom (Part 1/3)



Bird Park / Singapore

Who says there is no dinosaur fossil in Singapore?? I just dino dug a toothy one. Head down to Jurong Bird Park and you will discover more!

Trivia Qns: Guess who’s this sulky fellow that caught you peeping at him? Scroll down to the last for answer.

Little Conner flew all the way from the States to Singapore and decided to visit the famous Jurong Bird Park for his project about birds. Nice pose pumpkin! Let’s follow him to the African Waterfall Aviary.

While you are engaging in the African scenery, don’t forget to greet the African warriors! Ni hao!?

Cheerful African kids by the lily pond that completes the idyllic setting.

Women relaxing in the African hut adorned with indigenous artefacts.

The African Waterfall Aviary is considered as the world’s largest walk-in aviary that houses 1000 over free-flying birds. There is no waterfall in Singapore, however we have the world’s tallest artificial waterfall – Jurong Falls, at 30m high in the aviary.

This aviary kingdom is a parrot paradise. There are 92 species of parrots around the bird park, the largest collection of any zoo or bird park in Asia. Such a great variety of parrots that I really couldn’t remember what sort of species this is.

The Galah cuckatoo is one of my faves! Love pink. Galahs are highly-social and endemic to Australia.

Small waterfalls at the African Wetlands Exhibit.

Trivia answer to the qns on top: An ostrich, the largest bird that lays the largest egg of bird species.

Jurong Bird Park admission fee for an adult is S$18, a child is S$9. Get a Park Hoppers Special ticket if you also want to visit the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari within 1 month. The 3-in-1 Park Hoppers Special costs S$45 for an adult ticket (save S$13), child price at S$22.50. There is also 2-in-1 Park Hoppers Special for any of the 2 parks.

    @Jasper: Hey frankly speaking, I really like the Bird park. Somehow I felt like I was walking in the Jurassic park with huge trees and cages.

    @dong ho: I’ve more bird park photos to load. Stay tuned!

    @Bakeling: yeah.. surprised that it is still the world’s tallest artificial waterfall since many many years ago.

    @Borneo Falcon: yes the flamingo exhibit is the famous one too. Got the pic, will publish it next.

    @peteformation: HAHAHAH!! Nice!!!

    @Zara: cute eh? who? ostrich? little conner? me? LOL!

    Wow I certainly didn’t expect an ostrich! Hahaha. You look like you’re having fun doing the fossil digging. C:

    Anyway I doubt I will post up a video of my ocarina playing! Lol. And I need to practise more… but if you want I can always send you an audio clip of it. :P

  • eunice said on July 11, 2009 2:25 am

    @Pei Li: HAHA!
    Hey do post up your audio clip!

  • CK said on July 11, 2009 9:24 am

    Will the fossil turn alive at night like the one in the movie ‘Night at the Museum?

  • eunice said on July 11, 2009 12:09 pm

    @CK: Hmm… I guess so LOL

    can i ask what time is the time of operating hours and the venue for the african wetlands?

  • eunice said on January 23, 2010 9:38 pm

    @celine: er.. I think it’s the same operating hours as the bird park itself. Do check out the Jurong Bird Park website for details.

    hi, i like all of your photos!! very nice!…specially universal studios. I just want to ask, my husband and I we’ll be having a very short tour to Singapore this June. (2 days only) I’ve listed 10 places to visit, well first on my list is the USS,and I had a feeling we’ll definitely miss some places. Give me some advice in which places we should go, and how can I squeeze them all in 2 days? And best way to travel so we don’t spend too much time travelling.
    Thanks in advance!!!

  • eunice said on April 11, 2011 3:34 pm

    Thanks. :) USS can easily take up a day, so literally you only have 1 day left for the other 9 places to visit! MRT is an economical, easy and convenient way of travelling around Singapore.
