Spotted Munia

The scaly-breasted munia or spotted munia nests in our house every year. At least for the last two years. They usually come by around Aug-Oct and build their nest. This year they did the same. 2 out of 4 chicks survived. Interestingly, the little ones dont have the same pattern as the adult ones. The chicks are fully dark brown, whereas the adults have a beautiful scaly pattern on their underbelly.
