Rare Visitors of Singapore Botanic Garden

From the month of November to February, lots of birds flew south from the north to avoid the cold weather and some of them landed in Singapore. These migratory birds can be found from Sungei Buluh Wetland Nature Reserve all the way to Singapore Botanic Garden.
Among the migratory birds, Malayan Night Heron (Gorsachius melanolophus)
and Hooded Pitta (Pitta sordida) are 2 of the less common birds that have chosen Singapore Botanic Garden to be their re-fuel station. Once the weather get warmer, they will fly north back to their place of origin.
