Jurong Bird Park in pictures

Last Saturday, we joined another family at the Singapore Jurong Bird Park. It’s been YEARS since I last visited (I think I was eight at the time and my 13-year old cousin was our family’s “tour guide”!) and so I had absolutely no recollection of the place except remembering that it look a couple of long bus rides to get to the place from Thomson. 

Anyway.  Here are some pics we took. Enjoy. 🙂 

Birds of Prey show - don't stick your hands out!

So many delightful flamingoes

Seen a hornbill up close lately?

Shh...and look up there!

Imposing iguana that frightened the girls and fascinated the boys

The world's tallest man made waterfall. Uniquely Singapore.

Look at those vibrant colours!

A little bird whispered in my ear...

 

 

The park is a great place for a family outing. Compared to the Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park’s road circuit is much easier to cover within a half day’s visit.  

Its Splash-n-Slide station is smaller and less crowded than the Kidzworld one at the Singapore Zoo, which was great for a mother of a two young toddlers like me.  Less big kids to worry about, smaller space area to keep an eye on, but same amount of fun to the children anyway. 😉 

And I enjoyed being reminded how beautiful, fascinating and majestic birds can be. It is one thing to see many different kinds of animals, but quite another to be faced with such a myriad of species within a single definition of just one of God’s creations. 🙂
