In plain sight…



Here is the forest which is the home to many amazing birds! We’re lucky to have such a great view, but even amongst the streets of Singapore, you can still see pink-necked green pigeons and yellow-vented bulbuls fluttering around! Just stop and take a look!

  1. It’s so great to see there are other teenaged birder/bloggers in Singapore! I love your posts so far – you’re so lucky to see that much just outside your window. Myself I only can enjoy the sight of yellow-vented bulbuls and mynahs feeding in the evening with the occasional raucous cockatoo and always unidentifiable flying by once in a very long while – not forgetting, of course, the olive-backed sunbirds. πŸ™‚ Please keep posting! There is so much wildlife in Singapore no one realizes.


    1. Thank you so much for leaving a comment on our blog! We’re also happy to know there are other people in Singapore who love birds and nature, just like us. πŸ™‚

      We can’t wait to check out your blog! πŸ˜€


  2. So glad I found your site through your checking out mine! I will enjoy following your birding adventures….I am staying in Indiana (USA) for a while, and the view is nothing like your forest….I’m jealous! But outside my kitchen window I see lots of birds, especially since I’ve put up some feeders. My neighbor gets hummingbirds in the summer; now I see chickadees, sparrow, cardinals, a robin (I especially love robins), a mockingbird (which reminds me of my home in North Carolina), starlings (bossy – not my favorites), some I haven’t yet identified, and the tufted titmouse which pecked at the window and chirped at me – I had to look that one up in the bird book.
    So glad you are watching birds and not video games!!

    1. Thank you so much for visiting, liking and following our blog! I found your blog through Somewhere Up A Tree and I thought it was really interesting! πŸ˜€
      To us, hummingbirds, chickadees, cardinals, titmouses… are all amazing!!!! We haven’t seen them before but after seeing so many pictures of them on other bird blogs, we really want to see them ;w; We recently came back from a trip to Europe and when we first saw the European Robin, we were squealing at its cuteness!! Robins are our favourite birds too!
      Thank you so much once again! ^_^

  3. Thanks for following my Incidental Naturalist blog. I’m so glad that it brought me to your blog. I really like it! I loved seeing these birds during my time in Singapore. Which area are you in to have so many birds visit your garden? I agree that Singapore is a great place for spotting birds and other wildlife. So many people forget to look and see.

    1. Thanks for the comment! πŸ™‚ We live in the Bukit Timah area, not too far from the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. We’re really lucky to have an unused wooded area just facing our balcony. Since we started birding, we’ve been surprised at the diversity of birds in urban Singapore (like the title of David Attenborough’s programme featuring Singapore’s wildlife: Wild City !) How true that in our daily life we overlook nature unless we open our eyes to them. πŸ™‚ We really love your blog and your amazing pictures!
      Happy blogging!

      1. Thanks for the kind comment on my blog. Ah, I had some wonderful walks through Bukit Timah Nature Reserve but probably not as often as I should as I spent more time at Sungei Buloh or Ubin. You have a great place to start birding!! I look forward to following your experiences.

    1. Thank you for visiting our blog! So happy you enjoyed looking at our pictures ^_^ Indeed birds can be really uncooperative at times, but it’s worth the effort! We’re just fortunate that we can find these birds at home most of the time πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you so much for visiting our blog! We are fortunate to have a forest with so many bird species just at our balcony πŸ˜€ but yellow vented bulbuls are still one of our favourite birds because they are just so adorable and fluffy :3
