I see a flock of interesting birds in my feeder. At first, from a distance, I thought them to be migratory sparrows, but the camera revealed something amazing. A Nutmeg Mannikin or Scaly-Breasted Munia. According to Audubon Society they are non-native to the United States. They may be migrating over as new permanent residents or breeding in the wild as pet escapees. Whatever the case, I have new birds eating seed. I caught photos of both the male and female. Exciting yes? Enjoy the photos!
