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.
Kids are repeating the phase “Where are we going, clap-clap-clap, Jurong Bird Park !”
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.
So many birds are roaming Jurong Bird Park, there is really no quiet corner.
We absolutely love our feathered friends’ company.
Daddy took the opportunity to remind the boys that it is no fun to be living in a cage.
Daddy love the Kingfishers, so colourful but skillful fish hunters.
Kids love the ducks ! No Donald Duck, but these quacks are so handsome.
We even witness the feeding frenzy at the Ibis corner. The birds were busy spearing the poor fishes in the pond.
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.
(This class is recommended for kids age 5+)
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.
We even learn about how birdnests are constructed (not those bird-saliva type which Chinese treats as delicacy)
While the older boys were enriching their knowledge, the two smaller ones were busy at “Birdz of prey Play”.
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.
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 🙂
