A Pacific Swallow (Hirundo tahitica) spotted resting on a pole in the lake at Punggol Park, Singapore, on 28 Nov 2021. Getting a shot of one in flight will, of course, be an interesting challenge.

On Sunday, after lunch, I hiked the local mountains. The first time I used chain spikes, they broke right away.

Another observation from January 2021. A Pin-striped Tit-Babbler (Mixornis gularis) spotted at Chestnut Nature Park, Singapore.

Another observation from January 2021. Three Common Leopards (Phalanta phalantha) spotted at Pasir Ris Park, Singapore. Their poses in the shot makes it look like a time-lapse shot of one Leopard landing on the leaf.

The longest lunar eclipse in centuries will happen this week.

The “nearly total” lunar eclipse is expected overnight Thursday, Nov. 18, to Friday, Nov. 19. The eclipse will last 3 hours, 28 minutes and 23 seconds, making it the longest in centuries.

For U.S. East Coast observers, the partial eclipse begins a little after 2 a.m., reaching its maximum at 4 in the morning, for observers on the West Coast, that translates to beginning just after 11 p.m., with a maximum at 1 a.m.

One of MANY house finches I heard before turning a corner and seeing them.
