During the 2015 Rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum) season, Johnny Wee documented five new species of birds feeding on the fruits in his garden:

1. Blue-crowned Hanging-parrot (Loriculus galgulus) (top, above). This has earlier been reported by Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS in Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia LINK.

2. Red-breasted Parakeet (Psittacula alexandri) (above).

3. Juvenile Asian Glossy Starling (Aplonis panayensis) (above).

4. Javan Myna (Acridotheres fuscus) (above).

5. Black-naped Orioles (Oriolus chinensis) (above) that was earlier reported by Dr Vilma D’Rozario HERE.

In addition, he also photographed the Brown-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes malacensis) (above male, below female) that also arrived with the Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) in 2012 LINK.

In earlier seasons he documented the Common Flameback (Dinopium javanense) LINK; Alexandrine Parakeet (Psittacula eupatria) LINK and Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris convexus) LINK.
