Discover the best spots to observe native and migratory birds in their natural habitat.

Many different species of birds can be found in the various parts of Singapore, especially in our parks and nature reserves. These include both native birds and the migratory ones that make Singapore their pitstop.

Visit our parks or join birdwatching events to find out more about the birds of Singapore.

Follow these dos and don'ts for an enjoyable experience for everyone:

  • Refrain from making loud noises which can frighten the birds. Give them space so you can observe them in their natural state.
  • Refrain from playing bird calls as this may cause birds to become stressed.
  • Leave nesting birds alone and do not share their location online.

Make the most of your birdwatching experience with these tips:

  • Bring a pair of binoculars to catch a closer glimpse of the birds.
  • Remember to bring a camera to capture the birds in action.
  • Birds are generally most active in the early morning. If you are not a morning person, try birding around dusk.
  • Wear colours that can help you blend in with the environment, so the birds cannot spot you easily (e.g. darker shades of green and brown if you will be in the forest).
  • Dress in comfortable clothes and apply insect repellent.
  • Research bird species to understand their usual habitats and what their calls sound like.
  • Join birding communities to exchange notes on the latest bird sightings and tips on birdwatching.
