Birdwatching in Pasir Ris Park (Pied Fantail) May 24, 2015

By the time i got wind of Pied Fantail (Rhipidura javanica) chicks being photographed, they were already juveniles getting ready to fly and way oversized for the nest that it was hatched on. Anyways this photo log post was long overdue as well.

From Singapore Bird Group's post, i got to find out at they were about 11-13 days old and constantly being fed by it parents. I saw moths and butterflies as part of its menu.
