WINGING IT AT THE BIRD PARK: Susan, Deb, Sandy and I took a cab west and headed to the Jurong Bird Park. It was well worth the trip. The first exhibit was the penguins (above). Viewers get can see the birds both above and below sea level. Very nicely done. The rest of the exhibits were wonderful. I enjoyed the coloring of the peach-faced lovebird (right). There were plenty of scarlet ibis (below), pelican and swan. And we saw one of the biggest sea eagles imaginable, the Steller's sea eagle.

CRANE NUMBERS TUMBLE: After yesterday's upturn (meaning a decline in the numbers of UP cranes), today's Singapore Crane Index Limited Economic Indicator reveals that the UP cranes are back. Kind of the EXACT OPPOSITE of yesterday's report.

Date: March 20
Time: 8:30 a.m. (Singapore time)
Cranes Up (bad): 13
Cranes Down (good): 14
CRANES MISSING (neutral): 1
