Park Connector at the North

Compare to other green areas, park connectors are less crowded especially on week end. One of the main reason perhaps is the perception that Park Connectors have nothing to see?
Woodlands Park Connector
If you are coming from SLE and after turning to Woodlands Ave 12, Woodlands Park Connector is on the left.
Rose-Ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri)
See what I found on the tree? It may be hard to spot at first as they are all green in colour.
Rose-Ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri)
Thanks to the low traffic, the Rose-Ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri) actually was quite open! Once they start feeding, you just need to walk slowly towards them and you should be able to get quite near and observe them.
Rose-Ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri), Peacock flower
 They are feeding on the seeds of the Peacock flower!
Yusof Ishak Mosque
The near completion of Yusof Ishak Mosque can be seen from this Woodlands Park Connector. The new Woodlands Hospital will also be built at the now empty area. The view is even nicer at night especially after the opening of this new mosque.
Ulu Sembawang Park Connector
 I cross over Woodlands Ave 12 and continue my walk towards Ulu Sembawang Park Connector.
Long-Tailed Parakeet (Psittacula longicauda)
 Well is a parakeet day! Saw another different parakeet feeding - Long-Tailed Parakeet (Psittacula longicauda)
Long-Tailed Parakeet, Bintangor Bunut,
They are feeding on the fruits (their seeds to be exact) of Bintangor Bunut (Calophyllum soulattri)
Dollarbird (Eurystomus orientalis)
The Dollarbird (Eurystomus orientalis) took the highest vantage point at a distance away looking for flying insects. Not a bad day out at the park connectors. Well, try to spot them if you happen to visit these 2 park connectors.
