Two bird carcasses today. The one on the left is a Coppersmith Barbet (Psilopogon haemacephalus), a common resident species more often heard than seen, found dead in St. John’s Island. The one on the right is a migrating Blue-winged Pitta (Pitta moluccensis), the second in 2 days, found in the middle of the parade square at Marina Bay Fire Station.

A close-up view of the Coppersmith Barbet’s head. It was bleeding from its beak when first found, probably the result of some form of blunt impact.
