To describe my lifelong fascination with flight and with creatures that fly I like to echo the words of John James Audubon who in 1839 wrote of himself as "...one who never can cease to admire and to study with zeal and the most heartfelt reverence, the wonderful productions of an Almighty Creator."

On a recent trip to Singapore, I visited the Botanic Gardens for the second time, and again was rewarded by finding several species of birds I'd never seen before. These Lesser Whistling-Ducks were not new for me, but I also found Dollarbirds, Blue-crowned Hanging Parrots, Pink-necked Green Pigeons, a Yellow Bittern, and a Greater Coucal.
