White-bellied Woodpecker Dryocopus javensis
|Date||17 Feb 1999|
|Date added||25 Oct 2021|
|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)|
|Date revised||Changes made|
|17 Nov 2021||The spelling of the location was corrected to Jalan Mashhor, as listed in Wang & Hails (2007), rather than Jalan Mashnor, as listed in SINAV 13:1.|
