Daurian starlings @ Kallang Riverside Park

Kallang Riverside Park was relatively quiet today, with few visitors at the park. The pretty sunrise soon became too hot to sit anywhere along the park, since all the benches were illuminated in sunlight. Good place to do sunbathing if you must :)

Saw a Golden Flameback woodpecker, pecking at this already rather rugged branch
common flameback
Common Flameback or Common Goldenback (Dinopium javanense)
daurian starling
And we spotted a whole group of Daurian Starlings(Agropsar sturninus) on the Tabebuia rosea tree. these are migratory starlings as opposed to the commonly seen ones, Asian Glossy Starlings
saraca declinata
Saraca declinata aka Sorrowless tree - i wonder how did the common name come about
That's all for this trip to Kallang Riverside Park :)
