In the rice fields of Thailand.
This is another bird that is very common here in the rice fields.
I personally love the plumage on these guys. Extremely small birds.
These and the Chestnut Munia were my targets here the last day or so.
1D mark IV
ISO 320

lovely image. nice details & pose with good BG.
BTW, this is a white-rumped munia. As the name indicates, Scaly-breasted munias have scales on the breast
and their backs are reddish brown in color.

Thanks for the catch on the name. I knew that but was not thinking? I was thinking of the Scaly when I posted this on my flickr site.
Am headed out tomorrow to try to get the scaley. I have a open shot of it. But want a close up.
