Lees Reserve



There was a cloud of these little finches feeding on grass seeds, unfortunately on the far side of a drainage ditch so I couldn’t get close.  Known here as the Chestnut-breasted Mannikin, they are also called Chestnut-breasted Munia. Typical finches, their feeding antics are fun to watch – they tend to perch on the grass stalks rather than find dropped seed on the ground.
