To recapture the rustic Singapore life

Home Birding. CIrcuit Breaker Day 48 yesterday, WL saw a baby bird on the branch almost at eye level, and said to me 'a baby pigeon'. As we observed it, we noticed a 2nd juvenile in the branch behind. Next thing their mummy appeared. We then realized they were not pigeons. It was a Zebra Dove #斑姬地鸠 family. They were common neighbourhood birds, but glad to click some birds during this period in the residential area. #zebradove #dove #splendid_animals #singaporebirds #birdsofsingapore #sgnature #singaporewildlife #sgwildlife #wildsingapore #sgbiodiversity #nparkbuzz #nparksbuzz #sgpy_biodivercity #sgparks #nparks #birdporn #birdphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #birdportrait #野鸟 #野鳥撮影 #野鳥写真 #野鳥

Notice the hind legs? Those are not winter socks but pollen baskets (only females carry). On my earlier post, had a comment with @stevesunusual & learnt something new! Female bees provide their offspring with pollen (mixed with a little nectar), which means they have to visit numerous flowers (sometimes 100 plus per trip!) to gather enough pollen to feed each offspring that is produced. Swipe for video. While male of many species drink nectar from flowers, they lack these attributes that allow them to transport pollen efficiently.

#commonflameback #commonflamebackwoodpecker Some interesting woodpecker facts: The woodpecker's brain 🧠 is surrounded by thick, platelike spongy bone 🦴 that prevents its brain from concussion as it hammers its beak into the tree trunk. In fact, there is little space between its brain and skulls, so that the brain does not have room to bump around as compared to us, humans. #canonphotography #canonsg #canonsx60hs #nature #natureandme #naturephotography #naturelovers #nparks #nparksbuzz #sgnature #sginsects #sgwildlife #sgcityinagarden #sgbiodiversity #cityinagarden #gardeninacity #wildlife #wildlifephotography #ilovesingapore #discoversingapore #exploresingapore #wonderlustsingapore #naturelust #earthcapture #natgeowild #sgfantasticbeast

It's been awhile since the last post and we hope everyone's been doing alright this lockdown/circuit breaker/shelter in place. Here's a female baya weaver, looking all pretty bathed in the morning light. We spotted it at Lim Chu Kang just a few weeks before the restrictions kicked in. We'd gone to Tampines Eco Green a number of times to look for this weaver because there were quite a number of nests left over from the last breeding season, but never saw any, so it was nice to see this one here. 📷 Nikon D850 + Nikkor 600mm f4 E FL #weaver #bayaweaver #birds #birdphotography #birdsofsg #nparksbuzz #exploresg #nuts_about_wildlife #birdsonearth #best_birds_of_world #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #amateurbirder #birdlovers #birds_adored #birds_captures #birdstagram #audobonsociety #biodiversity #sgbirds #sgwildlife #wildlifephotography #sgbiodiversity #your_best_birds #naturephotography #nuts_about_birds #nature #nikon #nikonsg

Often neglected common bird. Any subject in good light and composition should not be ignored. Yellow-vented bulbul. #nikonsg #d850 #nikon600mm #singaporewildlife #sgbiodiversity #igbirds #wildbirdtrust #bulbul

|The #SEAbirdschallenge series| Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris) A species native to Singapore but was driven to the point of local extinction in the 19th century. It was only up to the 1990s that the birds were once again regularly seen in the mangroves in Pulau Ubin. First nesting was in 1997 and slowly the population became significant and stable. Perhaps, it is so common to see one now that people may not even know about their once tragic story. #orientalpiedhornbill #anthracocerosalbirostris #sgbirds #birdsofsg #sgpy_biodivercity #nparksbuzz #sgbiodiversity #nature #wildlife #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #natg eowild #bbcearth #animalplanet #nuts_about_birds #your_best_bird #eye_spy_bird #birds #Nikon #nikonsg #igsg #sgexplore #naturelovers #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #kings_birds #jlittleboxofdesigns #conservationthroughart
