Step into the embrace of nature and immerse yourself in a slower rhythm of life. Take a good listen to the sweet chirpings and let their cheerful chitchatting welcome you to a whole new world. Revel in the many species of birds that reside in our parks and nature reserves. You will be delighted to hear of, or even witness, the wide species of birds that have made Singapore their home or their ideal stopover.
Our parks and nature reserves are maintained to help facilitate the birds in creating the right homes. Many different species of birds can be found in the various parts of Singapore.
In particular, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is a wonderland for bird watching enthusiasts. During the migratory season between September and March, the Reserve functions as a significant stopover point for birds. From commonly seen birds such as the Common Redshank, to the incredible ones, such as the tiny Pacific Golden Plover's uncanny ability to travel over great distances (from Siberia to Singapore), Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve has many other interesting sights to amaze you. In fact, it is recognised by the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership as an internationally important site for migratory bird conservation. Here, visitors can look forward to witnessing some of the rare migratory birds such as the Nordmann's Greenshank and the Chinese Egret.
