Jurong Birk Park Singapore

Jurong Birk Park Singapore

Woohoo! Here I am with free tickets to the Jurong Birk Park (裕廊飞禽公园). Pretty excited as I haven’t been here in ages and it’s nice to be able to explore it again. With around 8000 birds from 600 species, Jurong Birk Park had established itself as one of the world’s best in conservation and display of birds in the natural setting. For more reading on information and pricing, you may want to visit Jurong Birk Park website. ^_^

Even though we had free tickets, we were still given the above discount vouchers to be used some of the participating outlets on the same day of visit. Off to explore then!

The Shoebill, Black Crowned Crane, Saddle-Billed Stork are some of the many unique birds that you can see here.

You can also take the fully air-conditioned Panorail Ride that travels in a loop to 3 stations (Main station, Lory Station and Waterfall station) if you don’t want to cover Jurong Bird Park by foot. A single trip on the Panorail will cost S$5.00 for an adult ticket, and S$2.50 for each child. The above shows Lory Station.

    The owl name you missed is “Barred Eagle Owl”, your Wreathed Hornbill shall be a male Wrinkled Hornbill, a Wreathed Hornbill is related but looked differently. Your Black Kite is obviously not a kite, I can only tell it is a Hawk-Eagle, I can’t really be certain with the species provided with such angle, but I think it could most likely be the Mountain Hawk-Eagle.

    • I believe I extracted the names from what I seen in Jurong Bird Park, maybe I got it wrong! Thanks for the information anyway!
