Committee's view
This record was submitted by a highly experienced birdwatcher and would have constituted the first national record if accepted. The Singapore Bird Records Committee had a split vote due to the lack of descriptions available at the time, and as a majority could not be reached, the record could not be accepted. 

The record was subsequently reassessed in March 2024 with original descriptions provided by the observer, Yong Yik Shih. As expected given the bird's distinctiveness, the description left no doubt as to the identification and the record was accepted unanimously on review.
