Was watching birds in the large overgrown Chinese graveyard just next to our home. The Covid-19 lockdowns appear to have been good for the White-headed Munias (Lonchura maja).
Saw two different flocks. One flock, that I could image and count, had in excess of 200 birds with 12% being juveniles – lower rates of juveniles than when seen in July as not the peak breeding period now.
Image above shows a juvenile and that below is an adult with seed sticking to the bill.
