In Singapore, there are 3 types of Pittas that can be found, 2 are winter migrants, and 1 a native. Recently I had been on the hunt for all 3 of them, and manage to capture all 3, including the rarely sighted Mangrove Pitta.

Hooded Pitta (Pitta sordida), winter migrant

Mangrove Pitta (Pitta megarhyncha), rare native of Singapore
