White-headed Munia (Lonchura maja)

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

Hello Redzlan,
Most of all I like the composition in this photo. It creates a very good depth in the photo. Excellent sharpness, also in this special bird. Good OOF BG.

Salam Redzlan,
a lovely shot of this "chak uban" in my place. the sharpness is excellent and the graphical presentation of the lallang is very pleasant.
nice composition with the subject shown in great details, plus artistic toch by you.
A splendid shot.



This is really nice shot. The perch on the tall weed is just beautiful. I like the clean green background with the bird pops out well in the frame.

TFS and best regards,
