We were watching the swimming pool for any visitors wanting to bathe in the baking hot sun when a ruffled black bird fluttered in. We thought it was a myna, but as it was a slow day, we decided to take some pictures. Good thing we did, because it was something we hadn’t seen before – an oriental magpie-robin! These birds were almost extinct in Singapore but are making a comeback. When we searched for pictures of this adorable bird, we realized that all the types of magpie-robins look similar 😛 But this is definitely a cute little bird! Cheep cheep!
