Munia Mania

Munias have become our latest favourites. They are mostly found in open farms and a lot of them can been seen gathering nesting material these days. During our frequent trips to Manchinbele and Valley School over the past few weekends, we have had abundant sightings of the Black Headed Munia, Scaly Breasted Munia, White Throated Munia (Indian Silverbill) and the White Rumped Munia.

This picture of the Black Headed Munia was taken at Valley School, Bangalore.

    Hi, I regularly read your blog. Thanks so much for the detailed info. Have been to the MiniForest and Madivala Lake – directions are great!
    If you’d like to see the spotted munia, its nesting at Madivala Lake. This is a link to my blog: http://ifornature.blogspot.com

    Hey Deepa,

    It has been a bit busy offlate for both Neelu and me. Plus the weather/light conditions haven’t been very conducive for birding. Hope to get back to it soon.
