White-breasted waterhens are the most common water bird I’ve seen in Singapore, apart from egrets. However, my varied sightings of them, in locations ranging from alongside the Green Corridor to in the middle of a cross country race (yeah, I bird while I run) having a calm stare-down with a White-crested Laughingthrush, have not involved any actual water. My recent trip to Sungei Buloh finally proved to me that these birds, in fact, can swim, and quite well, apparently.

I'm a young teen explorer of a world full of wonders. I tend to be distracted by birds in the middle of a conversation and may or may not narrate butterfly life histories at random intervals. Through my camera and my writing, I aim to bring the wonder I feel when I see a new species or admire a vast vista to a new audience, and avoid driving away my few remaining friends.
