All Singaporean birders know it: the Stork-billed Kingfisher of the Singapore Zoo.

The Stork-billed Kingfisher is fairly common in Singapore and can be easily observed. Still a couple of them are quite famous: one living at the Singapore Bird Park and the other at the Singapore Zoo. Visiting the park yesterday I came across it looking for food over the pond surrounding the “Primate World”.

A number of primate images are on the way, but in the meantime enjoy this birder’s star.
