Lesser known to many also are 3 chinese graves that is located beside the carapark of Jacob Ballas Children's Gardens. This graves date back to the mid 1800's. See my blog about this graves later on.
On Deepavali Public Holiday, we paid a visit to this park to check out the bird life here. This are some of the birds caught on my camera by the Echo Lake. They included a Black Swan with its egg, a white breasted waterhen and finally two Lesser Whistling ducks.
The star of the day that caught my eye was an escapee, a small sized bird from a distance that looked like a Eurasian Tree Sparrow but on closer inspection with my bins, it was a cut-throat finch , more commonly found in Africa. The adult males of this species has a bright red band across its throat, so that really made the identification of this bird so much more easier.

The question is what was this escapee doing here?
