I saw three juvenile Scaly-breasted Munias feeding on the ground who took no notice of my presence at all, giving me the opportunity to get several closeup shots. Unlike the adult birds, the brown colour of the immature birds is not as dark, and the bill is not as black.
The younger juvenile birds don’t even have many of the scaly marks.
While feeding happily, these 3 birds came so close to my camera that I was able to take these portraits. I find them extremely cute!
