Committee's view
Background
At least three birds (a pair and one female) observed on three separate occasions during the time period. Treated as three separate records in Lim (2009) but lumped here as they were likely from the same flock. A pair and a female reported on the first date, a male reported on 28/2/1987 and an unsexed bird on the last date. Descriptions are not available in SINAV 1:1, SINAV 1:2 nor SINAV 1:3. Note that Wang & Hails (2007) does not list detailed records for this species and just states that it is rare.
Verdict Accepted / Wild (Unverifiable)
