I think it is a female Besra; but not sure at all :(
Any comments on those pictures gratefully received !
Its throat showed a mesial stripe.
The sparrowhawk was observing attentively the ground and didn't pay much attention to the flocks of Red-wiskered Bulbuls hanging around. I had confirmation of its culinary preferences 15 minutes later. I sat in a coffee shop, 50 meters from the tree, and started talking with the owner who is interesting by birds and know me. He had noticed the raptor (he called it "chim cat" = falcon) for a week already, and just the day before, he saw it catching a rat right in front of him !
The second tick was a Flowerpecker. I heard a sharp tsik...tsik and thought it was a Scarlet-backed, a species I encounter from time to time in the park. But I was surprised to spot through the bins a male Fire-breasted, a bird I didn't expect to see here !
PS : This winter, in this park, I haven't seen a single Thrush yet ! Last year, I remember, we had here some crazy days with 4-5 species at the same time. That's quite strange isn't it ?
