Dr. Jean Ho’s video was recorded this morning from her residence. She had earlier recorded the haunting call but only now was the call identified.

The video was sent to field ornithologist Wang Luan Keng who identified the call as that of a Lineated Barbet (Psilopogon lineatus).

You can check out the call HERE.

    A few years ago, imports of Lineated Barbets were common among bird shops in Singapore. Most of these birds were sold quite cheaply. Being rather noisy, and not having much to recommend them as aviary subjects, quite a number of them were released.
    A feral population is now somewhat established in Singapore.
