We witnessed a pair of Oriental Magpie Robins mating on a thick horizontal branch of an Albizia tree at Lentor Avenue. Well spotted and thanks to AH, I got the chance to time the incident .. 1, 2, 3 .. not more than 4 seconds and the radiant male de-mounted. (Not bad for a bird, I thought. I've seen worse.) The male then flaunts his strong black and white tail plumage to the fullest (like a fantail) before he flew away. No one knows what that was all about. An after-courtship display or another courtship display. Anyway, he left the female singing for more before she too flew off in the opposite direction.
