Today at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (BTNR), I saw this tiny cute frog at the side of the pathway, a snake, monkeys, smelled garlic somewhere (strong smell!) and saw birds like the woody woodpecker and the racket tail bird.

Hen later told me that it was the greater racket tailed drongo bird that I saw. Oh wow. haha

It’s quite different from other birds that you see. There’s this ‘long tail’ protruding from its feathers. I wonder if I’m using the right terms but alas, I’m not an expert… just an observer so do check out these 2 links below:
