White headed Munia


A very short and quick note: I was finishing a field inspection at our sanitary landfill this afternoon when I spotted two estrildid finches having their lunch on wild reed. Quickly changed my 24-105mm at the back of the car, and took a few shots. This finch belong to the species Lonchura maja (Indonesian: pipit haji; pipit bondol; bondol haji). One of the beautiful feature of this bird is the copper-brown upper tail-coverts.

Do you notice the claws, they remind me of Aliens movies .
