One of our favourite places to visit in Singapore is Jurong Bird Park,  we’ve been there 4 times now and it never gets   old. I guess being bird  people makes a difference but there’s something quite stunning about  seeing these spectacular  creatures up close and personal. The colours,  the beauty, the variety are amazing and since we both love taking  photos, we spend a great deal of time trying to get just the right shot.

 The park itself is really well kept, it’s pristine and the gardens are well  tended, the birds are the number one priority and  it shows.

 We saw Aussie cockatoos, stunning blue and yellow parrots and vivid  red macaws, flamingos, pelicans, lorikeets,  swans and a host of other birds and the flowers and gardens were just gorgeous.

I won’t say more as I’d rather just share a few photos instead.

What do you mean you can't take me seriously!!!

Also, one of our favourite places inside Jurong is the Lory Loft, it’s an enormous walk through avery filled with all kinds of lorikeets that you can hand feed with honey water which they absolutely go mad for. We made our way into the loft and got our honey water and were immediately greeted by some very hungry and very cheeky lorikeets, most we had seen before but there was a new species there this time. They were brown and gold with bright orange bands across their chests. We didn’t think to ask what their names were but they are gorgeous. At one point I had 5 birds on me at once and one very cheek Rainbow Lorikeet on my head and when he spotted a small red mole near my temple, he decided to do a little surgery and remove it for me. Haha, it barely hurt and I didn’t want to shoo him away so he just stayed on me till it was all gone. Only a little bit of pain which was well worth the experience for me.
