And it's looking like we'll have an eighth pretty soon- Camille's baby belly is starting to bulge! I'm happy to see her pregnant again. Her last baby, Dora, was killed by a car and it just about broke my heart.
The monkeys were hanging out along Hindhede Road- not the most scenic spot for a nature walk- but even so, I think the monkey walk trial run went well. The monkeys were active and in a spot where they were easy to observe, so everyone got to see the babies, and to witness some interesting behavior, including Annette's power-line acrobatics.
As a special bonus. we spotted a lovely bird flitting around the trees super fast, almost like a hummingbird. When we got home and looked it up, we discovered that it is a crimson sunbird. This pretty little thing is actually the national bird of Singapore! Apparently many people thought it was a suitable bird to represent Singapore, since the country is sometimes referred to as the "little red dot."
Adorable baby monkeys and colorful birds- not a bad day! If you're interested in attending a monkey walk, keep checking the blog- I'll update the next time we have one!
