Singapore Botanic Gardens

Singapore Botanic Garden is a very good birding place in Singapore. Well, it is actually very near Orchard road. It is a very mature garden with lots of old trees. I saw the common flameback, magpie robin, radjah shelduck, lesser treeduck, black swan, mute swan and many more there.

The gardens was first founded in 1849. In 1990, NParks took over the garden. I think they did a very good job.

About birding there, you I found these species at these specific places.

  • Near Bandstand- Common flameback
  • Near Bonsai garden (a bush)- yellow vented bulbul, Black naped oriole, pink necked pigeon
  • Near Eco Lake- Pied fantail
  • Eco Lake-White breasted waterhen, Radjah Shelduck
  • Symphony Lake-Lesser treeduck, white breasted waterhen

What an ecology wonder! A good birding spot just in the heart of the city.

    Ecuador is a paradise for birdwatchers since it counts more than 10% of the worldwide species and which are mainly in Amazonia, in tropical and cloud forests, on the famous Galapagos Islands. On the Pacific Coast hundreds of endemics such as the toucans, condors, albatrosses, blue and red-footed boobies, red masked fools, cocks of the rock… Ecuador is also par excellence “The Earth for the Birds” This small country shelters around 1600 bird species (excluding the numerous other species which man has identified), more than in other large countries such as North America and Brazil among others.
