Not only did we meet up with David and Mary in Singapore, but Julia and Eric, mutual friends who also did a last minute booking on the same cruise.

For the Saturday, we talked about various things to do, and finally settled on the Jurong Bird Park. I had not heard of this amazing place until recently, and was surprised to learn that it has been operating for about 90 years.

From the Hotel Boss, we were able to get a people mover to take all 6 of us out to the bird park for $32.00 This was good value financially, but also the driver talked about so many interesting things about life in Singapore, the journey flew past in no time.

We arrived at the park just in time for the Flying Bird Show. We have seen similar shows elsewhere, and rate this amongst the best for both the variety of birds at the show, and the level of training some had achieved. One parrot sang (somewhat not musically) happy birthday in 5 languages.

We had not seen the Toucans alive previously, so that was a thrill. Once the show was over, we walked in and

through as many of the aviaries as we could. The park has many levels, plenty of steps, streams and a waterfall, all supporting a great colony of various birds.

There is also a shuttle that you can hop on and off to save the legs, something we indulged in as the day wore on.

There is so much irresistible camera bate here for those who enjoy creations beauty, the day passed by very quickly. From here, I'll just let our cameras do the talking.

We returned to Hotel Boss in another people mover. This time they wanted $60 for the trip. I advised the spruiker that we had come out from The Boss for $32.00 and that his price was much too high. A counter offer of 45 sealed the deal!

If it lives up trees, it could be a bird? oh well, still a colourful critter.

We love those flamingos too. This whole park is worth a day or more for anyone with a love of bird photography.
