|Orchid entrance to the Park|
Well after the last couple of days postings you will be relieved to hear that this is the last!! Below is a quick photo summary of our trip around Jurong Bird Park, with omissions from the stars of the previous three posts. I have to say there are still many more birds and photos I could of added but as my Blog is about my time in Singapore and not the Bird Park I needed to stop somewhere! For someone who's not really into birds it has surprised me, when I sat down in front of the computer to write a post on our visit, how this one trip has escalated into more that I had thought - Ok perhaps I do like birds!!!
I have to be honest and thank hubby as many of the photos are those he has taken - he has a higher class camera than me - nothing to do with talent !!! cough cough….
|baby flamingoes in hatching house, almost as ugly as the baby parrot!|
|the startling blue colour of the Blue-eared Starling|
|Anyone for Guinness - Ever popular Toucan|
|Bird of Paradise|
|Another Bird of Paradise!|
|And another Hornbill!|
As we were on a way out of the park we passed another pen of flamingoes; interesting in itself but what grabbed our attention was not the bright salmon pink birds but what was sitting 30 foot up on top of the enclosure - a massive lizard. Since returning home we have found out that this orange creature is in fact a mature Green Iguana which turns orange as they mature. This one must have been quite an age, he was huge!
And as a final farewell to the park a few photos of the orchids that line the entrance/exit to the park. A great day out.
