Committee's view
Background
Reportedly perched at the top of the Bukit Batok Park transmission tower, but communications in the YahooArchives suggests that the bird was likely a misidentified Peregrine Falcon based on descriptions and doubts casted by the observers. No descriptions of the bird in SINAV 19:4.
Verdict Not accepted (Unverifiable)
