Not So Scaly Breasted Munia

Juvenile Nutmeg Mannikins

We had a pair of Nutmeg Mannikins (also called Scaly Breasted Munia) visiting our birdbath all winter. We were hoping for a nest but never found it. However, they've started bringing juveniles to the bath so they must have nested nearby. The fledglings don't have the full coloration of the adults, but are getting a few feathers that look like scales.
