Road-side birds on Sunday

I submited this link to the Bird Phototograhy Weekly, from Bridfreak.com
Clik the logo above to participate.

I had a quick shots of common Roadside birds, while on the way to work today (hey, I work on Sunday!). Scaly-breasted Munia feeding on grass seeds.

Our former Pacific Swallow is now split as Hill Swallow. The single Muia shot is classy!

Yes yours is 'Hirundo hyperythra' with orange red underparts compare to 'tahitica'dusky underparts.

That Munia is one of my favourite.

Yup, nice shot indeed! We have the Dusky Munia here which is endemic to Borneo.Too bad tho coz my shot wasn't as nice as yours.(next time I hope)

Great shot of the birds. I am not sure we have these in Colorado. If so I have never seen one just like this.

When you describe "common" birds I smile. They are new for me. Beautiful photos of the scaly Muia.
