Scaly-breasted Munia (Lonchura punctulata)

An unexpected visitor in our backyard: Lonchura punctulata, the Scaly-brested Munia. This bird is endemic to Asia and has been introduced in many parts of the world. They were also kind enough to hang around long enough for me to get the camera with “Big Bertha” (my 200-500mm telezoom lens).

On small-screen devices like phones or tablets, you can just scroll down. On larger screens, you may also click on any image to open it in the slideshow gallery view. For the best effect, I suggest switching your browser to fullscreen mode then. This is usually done by pressing the F11 key (and again, or ESC, to switch back).

If you would like to use any of these photos, for whatever purpose, please read my page about image usage. Thanks.
