Singapore Species List




This is a list of species observed during my visit to Singapore over the period February 2 - 3, 2007. Each common and scientific name is a link to a Google image search for that name. This provides a quick way to find images of each species (if Google's search can find them on the web). Bird names (and order) are per A Checklist of the Birds of Malaysia by the Malaysian Nature Society (2005).

Definitions of abbreviations used are as follows:

*
