Committee's view
Background
The exact first and last dates are imprecise, but a Facebook post from 6 September 2014 mentions that it has been around for "over the last 1 month". The bird was certainly around since August. Last date here extracted from an eBird chceklist, but the bird likely stayed for longer. Early September is an unlikely date for this species to exhibit vagrancy to Singapore - moreover, the bird was around since some time in August. It is more likely that this bird was a escapee.
Verdict Accepted / Escapee (Verifiable)
