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!
Shoebill (Balaeniceps rex).
Black Crowned Crane (Balearica pavonina). Think it’s staring at me!
Saddle-Billed Stork (Ephippiorhynchus senegalensis).
One of the many exhibits – African Wetlands that was inspired by St. Lucia Wetlands, South Africa. Get transported into a world of African birds amidst a body of water and three native-style pavilions outlined with tall palms and green ferns. 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.
At 3,000 sq.m and with 1,000 free-flying lories, the Lory Loft is the Bird Park’s fourth walk-in flight aviary and the world’s largest Lory Flight Aviary!
Upon stepping into Lory Loft, the pleasantly strong aroma of Dimbulah Coffee will greet you. I had a Ice Mocha here at S$4.90 (after using the S$1 discount voucher).
Walk past Dimbulah Coffee, visitors will have the opportunity to feed the birds by hand at the 9-storey high two-tiered central feeding tower.
Colourful, noisy and exceptionally bold—Lories and Lorikeets are great fun to watch.
Walking on the suspended bridges, with the rich red, yellow, green and blue feathered Lories flying around. Nice experience!
Bird Discovery Centre – where you can learn about interesting avian facts.
The Riverine is a simulated freshwater river habitat featuring various species of waterfowl, fishes and turtles. It gives visitors an intimate underwater view of more than 20 duck species, through an 11 metre wide glass-viewing gallery.
Terrace Kiosk – You can also make use of the discount voucher here. They sell Vegetarian Nasi Briyani and Singapore Hainainese Chicken Rice too! 🙂
Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream for the hot day!
Near the entrance/exit, you can have up-close photos of you taken together with parrots too!
Signs detailing the attractions and exhibit are abundant all around Jurong Birk Park.
Penguin Expedition – Occupying 1,630 square metres, Penguin Expedition is home to endearing penguins. The five species on exhibit are the Humboldt, the Rockhopper, the Macaroni, the Fairy and the majestic King Penguin.
Made ourselves comfortable at the Pools Amphitheatre at around 3.45pm to catch the 4pm Kings of the Skies (Birds of Prey Show). Please do take note of the show timings if you are coming to Jurong Bird Park. Oh yes, the feeding times as well.

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!
