These were taken at Upper Pierce

#6 Black naped oriole


#7 OK, this is not a bird. it a cute green crested lizard . (corrected)


#8 A rare find for me. A very Huge Stork-billed Kingfisher


#9 A pair of collared Kingfisher was nesting on a tree. There was a hole on the trunk and this fella keep flying to the hole. The action was too fast for me to capture.


#10 wonder if this is a scarlet backed flowerpecker.

The large brown bird is a lesser coucal (see: http://www.naturia.per.sg/buloh/birds/Centropus_bengalensis.htm)... but koel is a good guess, as they are both members of the cuckoo family.

The green lizard is not a changaeble lizard though - it's a green crested lizard (http://www.ecologyasia.com/verts/lizards/green-crested_lizard.htm), a native species which is now restricted to forested areas due to competition from the non-native changaebles.

The long tailed bird looks like a parakeet – perhaps one of these: http://habitatnews.nus.edu.sg/heritage/changi/villagebirds/index.html and http://naturesightings.blogspot.com/2006/03/long-tailed-parakeet.html

Nice series! I've started bird watching but have yet to see the large stork-billed kingfisher.

My guess for no. 5 is long-tailed parakeet and for no. 10 is striped-tit barbler.

I had only seen the stork-billed KF twice, once at mc ritchie (not captured cos too slow in setting up my camera) and this time at upper pierce.

#10 look like the striped-tit barbler. I'm still very new in birding but learning.

Glad that you all like my series. Thanks
