special thanks to @jan.wildlifechannel for this wonderful shot! ⠀⠀
earlier this year, @jan.wildlifechannel, @sclater.photog and I went wildlife-spotting in search of the elusive Barred Eagle-Owl (𝑩𝒖𝒃𝒐 𝒔𝒖𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒓𝒂𝒏𝒖𝒔). I may not be the biggest fan of birds, but I'm truly blessed to have friends who I can enjoy nature and go on outings like these with 😊 ⠀⠀
read on 👇🏻 to find out why 𝑩. 𝒔𝒖𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒓𝒂𝒏𝒖𝒔 is so elusive! ⠀⠀
a century ago, the barred eagle-owl was a resident species in Singapore. since the 1920s, however, they probably migrated to neighbouring countries and became very rare and didn't breed in Singapore. hence, despite its 'Least Concern' IUCN status, conservation of this real-life 'angry bird' is still crucial. ⠀⠀
this individual was spotted at Singapore Quarry in August 2019, much to the delight of many local birdwatchers a crowd of photographers had convened at a clearing, so it wasn't difficult to know when we'd reached our destination at the end of our long hike!⠀⠀
till next Monday, #staycurious !
(INKTOBER 1) Well ok let's get this started and see how far I go with this year's #inktober
The Green-haired Girl had been here before. But alone. Now she came with her Familiars. They whizzed around her, iridiscent blurs. She seemed more at home now, everything less strange, and maybe she would return.
She made a mental note about it.
For now, the Brown-throated Sunbirds perched in her green-and-brown hair, and fluttered about her billowing white blouse, and tittered their sunbird language with each other, noisy in company.
So exciting! Got to check colour proofs at @epigrambooks yesterday! Stoked for you guys to get your hands on this book. If you thought #thegreatsingaporepoosale was good, wait till you read this one, @maureenyeosuiyin outdid herself. Been a crazy past 2 months illustrating this guy 😭 but we’ll all be able to enjoy the fruit of our labour in October when the book’s out, God-willing! Taking preorders! DM me for a signed copy at SGD18 each! 📘🖌🤗
