It’s not every day you receive a dead bird notification that makes you swear loudly at your phone.
This strikingly-coloured bird is either a juvenile male Zappey’s Flycatcher (Cyanoptila cumatilis) or a juvenile male Blue-and-white Flycatcher (Cyanoptila cyanomelana), but either way it’s a rare passage migrant to Singapore. Unfortunately, this individual died after crashing into a glass wall at the Singapore General Hospital area, but we’ll be preserving the body for further research.
Big thanks to Zhaohan Goh for alerting me to this.
