Birds from Various Places

Together with my mom, we went to Singapore and paid a visit to my sister who's been living there. Aside from the side trip to Hongkong and Macau, I was able to do some birding even though my companions are not interested in birds. ;)

Here are some images I took during the trip.

From Singapore

Javan myna

This is a hairless bird (Javan myna), probably caused by mutation or illness.
