Photographer's Note

Chestnut Munia (Lonchura atricapilla jagori) on a lanzones tree, Malinao, Aklan, Philippines

This is the Chestnut Munia which is commonly seen in ricefields, grasslands and open country. They are sometimes considered as pests as they are voracious rice eaters and they travel together in a flock.

The flock to which this particular bird belongs lives on the cypress trees in the town plaza in front of my house. And nobody seemed to notice it until I pointed it out to them. Now the mayor of the town is so excited that 'wildlife' abounds right there in the center of town.
