White-headed Munia

Lonchura maja

My favourite of all the Munias found in South-East Asia. I remember when I was a child growing up flocks of thirty or more of these would come to the lawn of our house in Kuala Lumpur to feed every afternoon. Of course, development has taken its toll, but perhaps their scarcity these days has more to do with their popularity as cage birds.
