While the island provides a stopover point for many birds, Singapore also provides a home to many avian residents. The Kranji Marshes, a 56.8ha freshwater marshland near Sungei Buloh, houses more than 170 bird species. Among them, the blue-eared kingfisher is one of the marshland’s signatures species. The kingfisher is a solitary and shy bird, with eyes specialized to see clearly both in and outside of water. Although its global population is stable, it is a rare resident in Singapore and nationally endangered.
