"Olive Backed sunbird" Kranji Off The Beaten Path Tip by bpacker

Kranji Off The Beaten Path: 13 reviews and 13 photos


Though Singapore is highly urbanised, we do have large pockets of greenery and more than 200 species of birds over here. Here's a rough sample of birds that you can probably see in Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserves.

Singaporeans love to call this little fella a hummingbird but if truth be told, they cannot hover like a true hummingbird. And hummingbirds are only found in the Americas. This little fella prefers to sit on a branch and sip their nectar.

Name: Olive-backed Sunbird
Scientific Name:Nectarina jugularis
Malay Name: Kelichap Bukit
