A pair of white-crested laughingthrushes made a Stomper's day when they dropped by his home.

The Stomper shared photos of the two birds, which he said are regular visitors.

He added: "I stay near the reserves and these birds often drop by my house to play around and congregate. It's a joy to see them and hear their sounds too."

The white-crested laughingthrush is a highly social and vocal bird commonly found in foothill forests.

It is easily recognisable by its characteristic white hood and raised crest as well as a broad and elongated black eye-mask.

The bird has been sighted at Bukit Batok Nature Park, Kent Ridge Park and Hindhede Nature Park.
