Committee's view
No descriptions of the bird in BGNB Mar/Apr 1986, but it was apparently photographed by Clive Briffett. Details of the availability of this photo is unclear as of writing (9 October 2021). Wang & Hails (2007) and Lim (2009) cites the unpublished report by Hails (1988) - the documentation that led up to the publication of Wang & Hails (2007). We have no access to this documentation as of writing (9 October 2021).
Verdict Accepted / Wild (Unverifiable)
