Brown-backed Needletail

Postby seetohyw » Thu Aug 20, 2015 12:29 am

Shot this Brown-backed Needletail at Jelutong Tower on the morning of Singapore's Golden Jubilee.

From the lack of whitish lore, this needletail should be the resident sub-species visiting from Malaysia. It is one of the world's fastest-flying bird in flapping flight being capable of speeds up to 170km/h.
