More Fauna!

Arachnothera_chrysogenys_Keulemans

We recently added three more entries in our nature journal!

1. An osprey (Pandion haliaetus) seen diving for dinner near Marina Bay. This massive bird of prey is a common winter visitor to Singapore, which is when we spotted it.

2. A yellow-eared spiderhunter (Arachnothera chrysogenys) seen soaring overhead in The Coastal Settlement (lovely setting, mediocre food) in Changi Village. We heard its penetrating, squeaky “chick” call from high on.

3. A dark-sided chorus frog (Microhyla heymonsi) seen hopping along a sidewalk off River Valley Road. This amphibian is minuscule (only 2.5 cm from nose to tail) and we initially thought it was some sort of hopping insect!
