Black-naped Tern (3/27)

This coastal bird is white and slender, with a forked tail and narrow wings. It was one of the bird species identified and named by the founder of Singapore Sir Stamford Raffles in 1822. Nationally endangered, it is now considered a rare bird to sight because its breeding sites are heavily disturbed by human activities. If you are lucky, you may spot one at Pulau Ubin, Changi Beach or Labrador Park. Not only was the Black-naped Tern featured on the old $1 currency note, it also appeared on local stamps and CashCards.
