First Sighting of Daurian Redstart in Singapore

Year 2013 seem to be a good year for birding in Singapore. We have first sighting of Asian Openbill last month and another visitor this month that have no record in Singapore - Daurian Redstart 黃尾鴝 (Phoenicurus auroreus)

This photo was taken in Taiwan back in year 2010 on a rainy day. Never would I ever imagine that I could see it again back in Singapore!

Below are photos taken in Singapore :

Although is the first visit to Singapore, this bird is adapting very well. Not sure how long this bird will remain here or why it appear here. The video below on the bird while relax and doing preening.
