Take a walk in MacRitchie Reservoir and meet our feathered friends.
They are crepuscular creatures… what’s that mean?! Come find out!
But seriously, learn about the different avian species that are native to the rainforests of Singapore through binocular vision. Meet the Racket-tailed Drongo, Red Crested Woodpecker, White Bellied Sea-eagle, Stork-billed Kingfisher, White-headed Munia and the Dollar Bird. And if you are lucky we might get to see a bird wave, i.e. a flock of birds of different species working “wing-in-wing” to forage for insects in the forest understorey.
Learn about how these birds have evolved ecological strategies to live in complex ecosystem such as the multi-tiered rainforest.
