White-headed Munia at Raub Golf Course

Click the above LOGO for more participation from all over the world.

I found this small (11cm) Munia at open grassland beside the Raub Golf course.
Known as “Pipit Uban” in Malay meaning finch with grey hair – white head and throat.
This is my lifer. There are six species of Munia in Malaysia, and I have only seen two so far – this white headed and Scaly-breasted Munia
