Orange-headed Thrush

I took this photo of the Orange-headed Thrush Zoothera citrina on May earlier this year on the ground of the Rafflesia Information Centre along the Tambunan Road.  It was perched on a low branch on a smallish plant, probably in between feeding forays.  Since then I have been told it is dead, another victim of window collision.  Much have been said about birds and the dangers posed by transparent glass used in many buildings.  Most birds can perform incredible flight manoeuvres but none can detect transparent or reflective glass.  Sad.
