Black-headed Munias (Lonchura malacca sinensis) are increasing more difficult to find and declining in numbers.

Unsure how to call them:

  1. Wells 2007 uses Chestnut Munia Lonchura malacca sinensis
  2. OBI uses Black-headed Munia Lonchura malacca sinensis
  3. HBW 2018 uses Chestnut Munia Lonchura atricapilla sinensis

  5. Clements Checklist of the Birds of the World 2018 uses Chestnut Munia Lonchura atricapilla sinensis
  6. The Howard & Moore Complete Checklist of the Birds of the World 4th Edition uses Black-headed Munia Lonchura malacca sinensis
  7. International Ornithologists’ Union (IOC) World Bird List 2018, version 8.2 Chestnut Munia Lonchura atricapilla sinensis
