Today’s bird casualty consists of a female Daurian Starling (Agropsar sturninus) that broke her neck after flying headlong into a 2nd floor window.

Daurian Starlings are very common winter migrants to Singapore and can often be seen moving around in large flocks between the months of October to March.
