What are these cute Lories doing at Jurong Bird Park?
We were invited to immerse in Jurong Bird Park’s June holiday activities. After a hearty meal at Bongo Burgers, we say Hello to Dora and Diego. They will be appearing on Sat and Sun at 1230 (Amphitheatre), and some families will get to photoshoot with Dora and Diego.
We are able to enjoy Jurong Bird Park today, thanks to the late Dr Goh Keng Swee’s foresight.
We miss the monorail, is it decommissioned already? Daddy could still remember how the monorail offers uninterrupted view from the top, and we could witness how the red and pink flamingos transform the pond into a sea of red.
Next, Daddy brought the two older boys to attend Dr Squawk’s expedition. We travel around the world to know more about the different bird species. Our teacher kept the class curious about the magnitude of bird species, we even got to feel the weight difference in bone density between a flightless bird and one which can fly.
At the Breeding and Research centre, there is a nursery and even incubators, showcasing the newly born chicks. An eye-opener for us, as we get to follow a chick’s growing up phases.
Daddy told the boys that our Philippine friends would love to savour the balut.
No trip to birdpark is complete without a trip to the waterfall 🙂
But as we trek through the “African Waterfall Aviary“, try to identify the birds hiding in the branches or even fishing in the stream.
Although the Eagles, Falcons and Hawks are often admired, the vultures have an important job as scavengers (Click if if are curious about how Tibetans offer their bodies to the vultures)
The last attraction for us was at the Lory Loft. Kids will have ample opportunity to feed the cute Lories. We can purchase the honey-mixture feed for $3 per cup, but if you go in the afternoon, you might be able to find some left-over cups, as the birds are full 🙂
