Bird Watching

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.

Enjoy the panoramic view of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve from the TreeTop Walk and capture a few snapshots of the birds going about their daily activities. Stroll along the Mangrove Boardwalk in Pasir Ris Park and try spotting these little flying creatures. Wander into the idyllic Sembawang Park and discover the many different species of birds living in harmony amongst the lush environment of the park. Hear the sweet songs by Oriental Magpie-robin and Black-naped Oriole as you walk around Labrador Nature Reserve. Climb the 7-storey high (20m) Jejawi tower at the offshore wetlands of Chek Jawa and take in the breathtaking view of birdlife amongst the tree canopy. Who knows, you may be lucky enough to spot the Oriental Pied Hornbill!

Join a guided tour, participate in a bird watching workshop or gather fellow enthusiasts and pop into our parks and nature reserves. A handy camera and a trusty pair of binoculars could very well be your dependable tools as you try to catch a glimpse or more of these flying jewels, so do not forget to bring them!
