Birdie Breakfast

June 18, 2009

Two Sundays ago while cycling at Pasir Ris Park, a series of loud squawking stopped me dead in the midst of my pedalling. It was definitely the sounds from some birds. Curious to find out the source, I dismounted and walked quietly to a tree where the squawking was heard.

^ At first glance, one feathered friend was spotted.

bird02
^ Then, two appeared. Both were busy having their breakfast and do not seemed perturbed by the close proximity of my presence.

birdie03
^ Its sharp claws grasped the seed pod while its beaks cracked open the pod to reach the seeds inside.

bird04
^ The marks on the seed pods can be seen after all that pecking.

bird05
^ There were actually three of them. You can spot the third that was partially hidden by the clump of seed pods.

bird06
^ A hearty Sunday morning breakfast.

I have no knowledge in the identifications of bird species except for the common ones. Perhaps if there are any ornithologist out there who can provide some information or useful links on its name, feeding habits, and habitat. Many thanks.

Fishy business

May 24, 2008

A noon time visit to a place where fishy business occur. But firstly, a prelude.


Sighted a fisherman along the shoreline of Pasir Ris beach. Using a piece of cloth, he soaked it with seawater, squeezed the cloth and let the seawater dripped onto the ebb/flow line. Some movements took place. With a quick jab into the wet sand using his fingers, a 10-inch wriggling worm is pulled out from the sand. I guess he uses these worms as fish bait.


A bandit is missing.


Sundial and “A Bridge Too Far”.


Mini Mount Everest for the young climbers. One day, it will scaling the real Mount Everest.


Breezy and quiet.
