A beautiful Pin-tailed Parrotfinch (Erythrura prasina), found dead in Tiong Bahru by Isabelle Lee. Like most of the dead birds that have passed through me, this one’s neck is definitely broken – likely another case of windowkill. In the freezer now, bound for David Tan from the Avian Genetics lab tomorrow.

The Pin-tailed Parrotfinch is native to the region, but has not been recorded from the wild in Singapore. It is likely that this individual was a former captive.
