Skyhawk placed 6th out of about 70 shamas in the Bukit Purmei Zone 'B' Residents' Committee Shama Bird Singing Contest yesterday. The competition was managed by the Shama Club of Singapore and the judging was in accordance with its rules.

I felt that Skyhawk performed very well with regards to frequency, consistency, loudness and variety of song.  However, he hardly displayed and should have got little or no marks for this section. This was probably the cause of his lower ranking.  He displayed less than in the competition 2 weeks ago and it may be that he may not have fully recovered from it.

There is no day competition scheduled in the next month or so and, rather than wait for one, I have paired him with a female yesterday.
