We walked a few kilometers stopping here and there to listen and look for some birds. Unfortunately, the bird count was relatively poor. When we reached the Treetop walk, we decided to just continue along the trail instead of going back to where we came from at Marymount road. We're already at 4.6Km from the entrance. If we go back, we need to walk another 4.6Km, so we just decided to take the 10.2Km route to Bukit Timah which is only 5.6Km ahead.
View from the treetop walk
At one point after the Treetop walk, we could hear many sunbirds calling and we stopped in-front of a flowering tree. Here we were able to photograph a Crimson sunbird, which is the best bird of the day.
When we reached the end of the trail, we were expecting to reach the Bukit Timah Nature reserve. But we probably took a wrong turn earlier and didn't see the other trail. In the end, we just decided to call it a day and took bus 157 to get to the MRT station.

We had lunch at Toa Payoh community center, then took the MRT to Novena. My friend wanted to visit the church there, so I accompanied him. After the short visit, we took the MRT home.
Here are the other pictures I was able to capture.
