Birding with the experts in Bukit Brown

With the start of a New Year and bird identification skills a bit rusty, it's time one sharpen one's skill. The best and easiest way......bird with a group of experts ! Hence i went on an exercusion organised by the Nature Society. The person in charge of today's trip- Wing Chong.

It was a good turn out as well. Around 30 like-minded people were present. At the rally point in front of the cemetery entrance was a Changeable Hawk and another tree, a blue crowned hanging parrot ! A fantastic start indeed.

A great start to the year. Belated New Year 2011 to all birders.
