An amused STOMPer saw this mynah in an MRT station hopping nearer to the approaching train despite the announcement 'For your own safety, please stand behind the yellow line.'
Alyssa told STOMP via email today (Sep 2):
"Sometimes, there are birds in the MRT station.
"I saw this bird trying to go against the system when the speaker announced 'For your own safety, please stand behind the yellow line.'.
"And when the train came, it hopped closer to the train and pretended to jump, only to fly off.
"Birds nowadays are very smart."
...And in other news, somewhere else in Singapore, a different Javan myna (Acridotheres javanicus) pooped on a car.
I've seen quite a number of ridiculous posts on STOMP, but this one seriously sets a new record for sheer inanity.
