Touted as the best songbird in the Malay Peninsula, the White-rumped Shama is a black insectivorous bird with a chestnut-coloured belly. There are few left in the wild as most of them have been poached for the caged bird trade. Individuals have been spotted at Pulau Ubin, Sime Road and the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. Chosen for the old Singapore $50 notes, this prized songbird is also known to imitate the songs of other birds. How talented!
