“Fun With Nature” encounters laughingthrushes

posted in: Feathers-maintenance | 1

“I was up at Telok Blangah Hill this morning supporting the Nature Society (Singapore) Education Group’s Fun with Eagles. Just before the session started, some of us spotted a pair of White-crested Laughingthrushes (Garrulax leucolophus) sharing an intimate moment just above where the kids gathered.

“After an entertaining and educational talk, we were lucky to have more than a dozen raptors arrive, in under an hour, to cap off the session. Brahminy Kites (Haliastur indus), Oriental Honey Buzzards (Pernis ptilorhyncus), Changeable Hawk Eagles (Spizaetus cirrhatus) and Black Bazas (Aviceda leuphotes ) – they appeared singly or in twos and threes, much to the delight of the kids and the NSS aunties and uncles.”
