Birdwatching in Bidadari (January 10, 2016)

Happy New Year 2016 ! There is still time for birdwatching in Bidadari as the hoardings have not gone up yet, so a morning in Bidadari it is with hopes of spotting a Raptor and/or a Cuckoo. I didn't see many birds today and was about to leave, when a huge eagle flew and landed on a tree nearby me. That's the irony of it sometimes. When sometimes you are not looking out for it but you wish out long enough for it, it comes to you. The eagle was an Oriental Honey Buzzard.
