I was twiddling my fingers wondering if I was too lazy and didn't want to put pressure on myself or the OH to compile a BY for ST. Besides, it looks like we will be stuck on this tiny island country f

Just a few repeats of shots of the Black-naped Oriole at #68 and Swinhoe's White-eye from Herman         

79. Common Iora, Jurong Lake Gardens

12. Peregrine Falcon, Bedok public flats

 

This year saw a high number of peregrine falcons migrating to our shores. Short of high trees, the adaptable falcons have been hunting very successfully among the tall blocks of public housing.

Thanks all, the raptors were a big thrill. 

 

14. Black Bittern, Satay by the Bay

 

It took a few trips, and plenty of patience, to finally get a shot of the black bittern that liked to hang around the satay by the bay, although a female common kingfisher helped filled in the time. 

Herman only managed to get the juvenile black bittern as the adult was not showing itself. still a good consolation prize.

16. Common Kingfisher, Satay by the Bay

 

It likes to return to this pond next to the food court when it is in town.

18. Black-capped Kingfisher, Yishun Dam

 

Always a hot favourite migratory bird, but always a very very distant bird.

19. Ruddy Kingfisher, City

 

Usually a shy migratory kingfisher, everyone was surprised this particular one was seeking city life near a conference centre.

21. Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot, Eastwood Green

 

A small resident green parrot that is always heard, but hardly seen as it blends in so well with the tree tops.
