Pheasant-tailed Jacana at Sungei Buloh

posted in: Migration-Migrants | 2

On 15th December 2008, Mendis Tan posted an image of the Pheasant-tailed Jacana (Hydrophasianus chirurgus) taken at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, saying, “Sharing a bird that has not been seen at SBWR for a few years already. We think it is quite lost because this bird is a freshwater species.”

Similarly, Lee Tiah Khee shared his image of the bird at the same time: “What a big surprise! This Pheasant-Tailed Jacana has landed SBWR, my best christmas grift so far.”

Yes, this jacana is a rare winter visitor to Singapore.
