Committee's view
Background
The Nature Society (Singapore) Bird Group's Official Blog (see link) states that this was the last ever sighting of this species in Singapore as of 2017. It is described as, quote, "The first record was in 1986 and the last in September 2001 by Yong Ding Li and Ong Kiem Sian at the Rock path.". No dates nor number of birds were provided. Despite that, this record is not included in Lim (2009). The status of this record is highly unclear but is likely accurate, so we choose to accept it since populations of this species were still persisting in 2001. Dates imprecise.
Verdict Accepted / Wild (Unverifiable)
