Jurong BirdPark is a 20.2 hectare open-concept park. It is the largest in the Asia Pacific and the best in the world. Its collection of more than 9,000 birds from 600 species is among the largest in the world. The Park specialises in birds from Southeast Asia.

The Park has four aviaries, among which is the world’s largest walk-in aviary with the tallest man-made waterfall for visitors to enjoy a close-up view of free-flying birds from Africa and South America. Bird shows, staged at the Pool Amphitheatre and Fuji Hawk Walk are entertaining and informative and have thrilled visitors from all over the world.

The BirdPark’s exhibits and aviaries are specially designed to closely resemble the natural habitats of the bids. There are also open spaces landscaped with exotic flowering plants such as heliconias to enhance the beauty of the BirdPark.

I loved this specimen, so cute looking. I have taken some 5-6 frames of this before it flew off. I am yet to identify this bird.

Great capture of this wonderful bird ! It's really a wonderful bird, with so much colors ! Excellent sharpness and details, and also a very good composition, nice BGand nice POV. Well done ! Valérie.

Hi Satish, this bird is a Tangara chilensis (Paradise tanager) they live in the forest of Colombia, Venezuela, Guianas, Brasil and Bolivia.

Great shot, Satish. This is a really interesting bird. And making use of the park is a great opportunity. You've done a great job with the photo, too. I have a couple of post processing suggestions, though. First, I think you could crop it a bit tighter. Second, I think you could brighten it a bit. I've done a workshop.
