Deforestation and habitat loss are the main threats for the birds as they have a dependency for open woodlands and forest edges, just like this Uncommon Violet Cuckoo.


I discovered wildlife photography in late Dec 2016 when a photographer showed me photos of an Olive-backed Sunbird. I had no idea that such a common bird in Singapore is so pretty and we often went about our lives without noticing them. I became intrigued with more birds and animals and started looking for wildlife photography gear in early 2017.
