Land-pass Bird

Land-pass Bird

Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park


Land-pass Bird is a mythical bird with an azure body that glows at night. It is said that very few people have seen these birds. During fall, they fly in flocks towards small and large islands and reefs situated near the Straits of Singapore and hunt for a type of dinoflagellate known as “sea sparkle”. On a quiet dark night, their fluorescent blue feathers sparkle in the scattered moonlight as the birds perch on the trees of Raffles Terrace, overlooking the Singapore River.
