Saddle Billed Stork on April 2017 Desktop Calendar Saddle Billed Storks are native to Sub-Sahara Africa, but our guy on the April 2017 Desktop Calendar is from Jurong Bird Park Singapore. The image was finalized last year when the calendars went out for print. But is it a coincidence or what that I was in Singapore twice only last week. Twice because once while going to Myanmar and once while coming back from Myanmar for Escapers 17, I had to enter Singapore twice. Now since I cleared immigration formalities twice this makes it as two separate visits technically. Not that [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]
