9,000 birds

nah, this post is not about the stoopid Richard Gere Visa ad .... its about spending a day with 9,000 birds (600 species) at Jurong Bird Park (JBP) ...

FINALLY! school excursion relived .... its been ages since we have last been to JBP ... Wilson's first time there ... for Kay, Wei Hua & myself ... it was our second excursion ... post primary school days ...

the dreary weather (altho' the heavy downpour almost led to a postponement) was a blessing in disguise ... made the walk through bird paradise more pleasant ...

it was quite a fun experience ... the pictures say it all ...

:: the royal ramble - where we saw some pretty Victoria Crowned Pigeons ::

the following video captures the pigeon that escaped from the enclosure ...

short of being shy, it followed us around ... and freaked us out!

shortly after we managed to shirk the bird off ... it went after an ang moh couple and started humping at the guys leg while making funny noises ....

quite a horny fella eh?



:: at the Lory Loft - a walk-in flight aviary with 1,000 Lories ::

this is not for the faint-hearted ... if you are afraid of birds flying at breakneck speeds, then this is NOT the place to be at ... okay, i'm exaggerating ... but i seriously jumped out of my skin twice ... however, if you are game at having a go at feeding the birds ... it can be quite an experience ...

but beware ... these birds piss and shit all over the place ...
