Committee's view
No descriptions in SINAV 13:1 but a pair reported. This record is treated separately from "another" record of a pair at Gymkhana Avenue on 17/2/1987 in SINAV 13:1, as well as both Wang & Hails (2007) and Lim (2009), which is highly puzzling given than Jalan Mashhor and Gymkhana Avenue are roads literally adjacent to one another. Given that no justifications are provided regarding how the conclusion that they were two distinctly different pairs are provided, we here treat the Gymkhana Avenue and Jalan Mashhor bird as identical.
Verdict Accepted / Wild (Unverifiable)
