Choo Teik Ju a.k.a. choo photographed a female Scarlet-backed Flowerpecker (Dicaeum cruentatum) taking a leaf bath on a simpoh air (Dillenia suffruticosa) leaf. This happened on the morning of July 2008 along Jalan Durian in Singapore’s offshore island of Pulau Ubin.
Wrote Teik Ju, “I ever seen a Striped Tit Babbler (Macronous gularis) taking bath on the leaves of simpoh air at Chestnut Avenue, but was surprised to see this pretty lady taking a bath on simpoh air leaf too.”
