Our first milestone

The team in the Singapore Bird Project had been busy posting bird species update for the past week and we now have a total of 10 pages worth of detailed description of the various birds. We have completed the Paradise Flycatchers and in the midst of completing the swifts and swiftlets family.

Today, we’ll like to show you the new additions to the website. Firstly we have an online Singapore Bird List now, with brief description of every birds in our checklist (396 so far) and appropriate links to the various resources to help the birders in identifying and understanding the bird species.

We’re also issuing a new checklist in Excel format that is easier to understand and provide linkages back to this website so that you can keep current with the latest updates and changes.

Last but not least, we now have a Contributors page that list down the various people helping out. It’s still a short list, but we hope to change that soon.

Since the website has just begun, it’s good to remind everyone that we will strive for accuracy and completeness. Nonetheless we realise that with every project, there are bound to be mistakes and inaccuracies. Please do leave a a message and we’ll correct those promptly.

How this site is organized

The Singapore Bird Project main aim is to document all the wild birds in Singapore. Every species will have its own page. For example the Grey Wagtail page is https://singaporebirds.com/grey-wagtail. For now they are not organized, but there will be a landing page where all these species pages are plotted out.

The other section is the blog which is located at singaporebirds.com/blog and is accessible using the main menu. The blog itself contain the more general postings. These may include project status updates, special posts about bird behaviour, round-up of bird news etc. Whatever that is related to birds in Singapore.

The last menu item is the Singapore Bird Checklist where the latest checklist is available for download in Excel format. There will be more content coming soon at that section, as this website is developed.
