Which is Singapore's most common bird? Is it the House Crow, Javan Myna or Eurasian Tree-sparrow? Has the population of these and other resident birds increased, decreased or remain unchanged?
These were some of the questions which the Nature Society (Singapore) Bird Group wanted to find out when the Second Mid-Year Bird Census was organised earlier this year.
Unlike other censuses, this was conducted over a full weekend, with Saturday dedicated to counting birds in our "backyards"—our gardens, parks and any green oasis near home, and Sunday reserved for key sites, most of which have already been identified as conservation areas in the Singapore Green Plan. This arrangement was made so that birds in the more urbanized areas were counted in order to balance the bias towards the biologically richer areas of previous surveys.
if you want to visit all these birds at once then you can visit to the jurong bird park to feast your eyes.
