Black-headed Munia


 Spotted several of these small birds on my walk home through Davao City in Mindinao, the Philippines this morning after working the night shift at a local birth center (where I caught a beautiful baby boy named Jeth at 1:47 AM this morning). Turns out, this little one is the former national bird of the Philippines! She was only recently upstaged by the Philippine Eagle. But here she is, small and fabulous anyway, with or without any claim to national recognition … to her name. 🙂
