Birds at Pasir Ris

Pasir Ris is a bird haven and I hope it continues to stay that way although with the continuous non stop construction, I am fearful of this.

Here are just some of the birds during a 2 hours walk from Drive 1 to the Pasir Ris Park one hot afternoon last week.

Starting from Sungei Tampines, the ever present magnificent Grey Heron flying so close to the HDB flats10-PRP_0219

A little bird that is now a permanent resident. Little Terns are a joy to watch as they swooped down on high to pick the fish from the river.09-PRP_0287

The parakeets seemed to have invaded the East. They are now abundant in Changi, East Coast and Pasir Ris with big flocks of them.07-PRP_0478

The Collared Kingfisher is another very commonly seen bird in Singapore. At Bedok Town Park a few weeks ago, there were many of them and likewise on this walk there were a number of them over at Sungei Tampines and in the park itself.06-PRP_0502

And the family of Spotted Wood Owl is still there despite the recent pruning of trees by Nparks01-PRP_0535

Didn’t spot any woodpecker this time round though. Just many hornbills but they were too far away for a decent shots.
