Singapore Birding III

We moved on to a place where the Long-tailed Shrike was expected to be seen.

There he is! Long-tailed Shrike (Takasagomozuタカサゴモズ)
It flew down in the shrubs and disappeared soon after.

On another lamp post, a White-throated Kingfisher (Aoshobinアオショウビン) was sitting.

A White-breasted Waterhen (Shiroharakuinaシロハラクイナ) dashed from cover to cover, but stopped to check us.

A timid Zebra Dove (Choshobatoチョウショウバト) was quietly foraging in the reeds.

Two tiny but aggressive Olive-backed Sunbirds (Kibarataiyochoキバラタイヨウチョウ) were fighting over their perches. Today's winner here!

A Chestnut-winged Cuckoo (Kammurikakkoカンムリカッコウ) was a great surprise for all of us.

He didn't seem to mind us much watching him closely.
He could have landed here because he was feeling peckish on the way to his breeding ground:)
