On the way, we enjoyed the blue skies and also scouted the area a bit to see the setup for the fireworks tonight. There are a few good options for us to watch from, we’ll see later tonight what we do!

Particularly with the larger animals as generally you’ll never get to see them when its dark outside in a zoo setting.

We ended up spending the morning there, catching the hawk show and seeing most of the enclosures and aviaries. Jurong Bird Park is only going to exist for a few days more as everything is moving to become the Bird Paradise and will be adjacent to the rest of the Mandai Wildlife Reserve parks.
