White-crested Laughingthrush - A Daring Bird Species @ Telok Blangah Hill Park

On the way from Henderson Waves to the carpark at Telok Blangah Hill Park, my parents and I decided to take another route via the quiet exercise corner. 

It was relatively quiet till we heard a flurry of activity coming from the surrounding trees! Looking up, we saw no less than seven birds having a heated animated discussion that also involved jumping from one tree to another! 

Most of the times, i would stay silent in order to truly appreciate the sound of nature. But, i cannot stop my dad from mimicking their unique chirps!!! In a split second, the birds stopped their chatter and turned towards my dad.

Some of them even flew down to take a closer look! They must be wondering in their pea-sized brains why this "big bird" managed to sound like them. 

Unlike most birds i know, these White-crested Laughingthrush were daring yet apprehensive enough to hop closer to my dad, who was enjoying all the attention!
