A Singapore day trip at Jurong Bird Park

The beautiful Jurong jungle setting around the bird park is on the west side of Singapore Island, Changi Airport where you arrived is on the east side.

In between is a very interesting island republic full of exotic people food entertainment shopping lots of money to be made good nightlif nice tropical living plus Singapore girls and so on. It's expensive in relation to the countries around and they don't like chewing gum, yes you heard right that is banned. But anyway the birds are not interested in chewing gum Here are the parrots macaws cockatoos flamingos storks hornbills shoe-bills cranes eagles vultures exotic crown-pigeons and plenty of other bird species are around.

You can be sure about 80% of this beautiful and exotic flying animals you haven't seen and probably even heard about, the positive is, among others, here you can see them just in front of you in a natural, little-modified environment. They even have several bird shows during the day, where the parrots count to ten in English, Chinese, and Tamil and they really do, no tricks and cheats. 

Have you seen the tiger jumping through the hoop ? Well at the Bird Park in Singapore it's not the tiger, it's the red blue parrot which flies through the hoop, not only through one but through 4 in a row, it's really amazing what this little animal with wings can do.They are very uncomplicated birds, you give them food, they eat it, that's it. The positive you have out of this are great  colors, some "crrrrr creeee" and a happy bird plus a happy tourist, so what ? 

And? You maybe won't believe it but on the next day, they are still here, not eaten, imagine here around are all Chinese. Actually, the tourists will be even happier when they visit the  Marina Sands casino and win some money, its really worth a visit. 

There are rare and beautiful varieties of an exotic flyer. The Jurong Bird Park is not so well known since a lot of people go bird watching but be honest, it's always difficult to spot all these small colorful beauties, so the people are not really after it, but here they are really visually around in their semi-natural environment as it is visible at the bird park map.

Ok, I don't know what this little stalker are thinking about but since many of them are there and not flying away even when they have the possibility to do so it can't be so negative for them. The people who want to save the world, the animals, and other creatures should go and try to save the rats, but this is also not so good since we get the plague and other diseases back. 

Singapore has among other a "flying kingdom" and to emaphise this Singapore has been strongly marketed as a family holiday destination with countless sights and other possiblities for children and adults alike everyone in a family should be kept happy.

One of this is Singapore's flying animal kingdom manly inhabited with wonderful tropical birds and there are more animal parks zoos and aquariums with fascinating animals from all over the world. Among other the Singapore zoo with more than 3300 mammals birds reptiles and fishes. But now we talk about the Jurong Bird Park and bird-lovers will definately amazed at all the feathered beauties of the park.  
Exotic Parrots are plenty

The Bird Park  is one of the top places in Singapore to visit for the kids too.

All birds have their data sheets placed nearby so people always know who they look at.  There is a pelican cove, a flamingo site with a splendid waterfall with countless parrots, cranes, ducks you can watch from below the water surface and if you like to buy some food and feed the parrots, a theme store gives you an excuse to go shopping.

What I didn't like at all is, they charge a special low entrance price for the senior citizen but only if you are a Singaporean. This is for sure a discrimination since they come to Europe or the US the just pay the same as the locals. Actually, this is something the Singaporeans have in common with the Myanmar and Thais, there also the foreigners pay two or three times the entrance fee at national parks, zoos and similar places.

The Jurong Bird Park Parrot community

The Singapore Jurong Bird Park is an attractive day trip only some minor walking is essential. 

In any case, if you don't like to walk around there is an elevated monorail following the circuit and quite a lot is visible from this little train. The park spans over around 20 hectares mean go man go. If you have a look for the daily show and a close look at the other places you can watch the birds flying and see the immense wing span, the vultures participating in the bird show have around 2-meter wingspan, this is incredible. Visiting the place should be part of every first time encounter to the City-State, it is a great experience to watch hundreds of birds at one location easily walking from colorful exotic bird to the next.

​The walkthrough is easy, places to rest are under the tropical jungle trees and every resting place has a machine to get some drinks, it's not very cheap at 4 S$ for a small bottle of coke from the vending machine but when the sweat is running and the next "little thing", maybe a parrot is calling, what can you do. Passing the wetlands and some patches of mangroves you can sometimes even encounter animals which have escaped the books. It's an ideal place for the bird watcher. The Jurong Bird Park is a great way to experience a great wildlife under control and takes a close but limited look into Asia's flora and fauna.  

Birding and where to find the birds

When you are traveling in southeast Asia it is no big deal to find the most exiting birds big and small just walk around in the Jurong bird park in Singapore. Here are prime bird watching spots especially in the aviary and you can be sure you will see them not only hear them.
The Aviary
Exotic bird photos
In the Singapore aviary , the birds can be watched for hours and you have a good  chance that they won't fly away and let you standing in the dust or rather in the tropical heat. Although Singapore is a very hot and wet place close to the equator.

You gonna feel this very quick and there is no chance to jump into the flamingo cove or under the waterfall. The birds are not flying away from the aviary although several parts are open since they know very well where their food source is.

Since there is some walk to do to explore the bird park unless you are handicapped or lazy, use good shoes, better leave the slippers at the hotel.
