Munias Weavers Bishops and albino

Permalink 09:16:27, Categories: whats this doing here  
My thanks to Rafael Matias from Portugal for providing ID for these birds

Scally-breasted Munias Lonchura punctulata. The fact that the facing bird is a juvenile moulting into adult plumage suggests strongly a breeding record (the option would be that juvenile having excaped from captivity...after having hatched also in captivity...).

Northern Red Bishop Euplectes franciscanus (not Euplectes orix): look at the black on the face mask not extending below the bill (no black on chin) and on the crown extending to the nape.
