Scarlet Minivet Pericrocotus speciosus
|Date range||19 Jan 1997 to 22 Mar 1998|
|Location||Bukit Timah Nature Reserve|
|Date added||25 Oct 2021|
|A total of over ten reports from 19/01/1987 until 22/03/1998, with a maximum of three birds recorded at any one instance - a pair with an apparent juvenile (SINAV 11:2). Lim (2009) lists them out and treats them as separate sightings but omits some records that are included in the very same paragraph of the references cited. No descriptions are available in any of the references. Note that the first date listed for this spate of sightings in Lim (2009) is 20/01/1997, but that in the primary document SINAV 11:1 is 19/01/1997, which is the date listed here. These sightings are not listed out in Wang & Hails (2007), that just states that they are a very rare resident confined to the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.|
|Verdict||Accepted / Wild (Unverifiable)|
