Pulau Punggol, Halus, Tampines 27Feb16
Started the day at Pulau Punggol. Nothing much here, although the African escapees (Common waxbills and Pin-tailed whydahs) were still around. The only raptor around was an immature pale Changeable hawk eagle.
At Halus, the Baya weavers were nesting by the roadside.
The juvenile Ashy tailorbird (left) has fledged and sat on a branch calling for its parents. The juvenile Common tailorbirds (right), on the other hand, were more insistent, chasing their parents around, begging for food.
The male Common iora was in breeding plumage.
A dark Changeable hawk eagle was chased by a Large-billed crow.
At Tampines Eco Green, the star bird was the male Cinnamon-headed green pigeon (left); apparently there were two. On the right is a male Pink-necked green pigeon for comparison.
A male Oriental magpie robin was very cooperative, to the delight of some photographers.
Finally, a feeding female Scarlet-backed flowerpecker to round up the day's birding.
