Tricoloured Munia
Its been just over a month that the Vijayawada Nature Group has been formed...and the group has started a Wetland Census study in the City (November to January +/- February)and surrounding areas. Group members, new comers are participating in the wetland census. There has been lot of excitement with few first sightings for this area. I bagged two lifers on Sunday morning session! This is one of them! The munias were spotted to be flying around in small numbers of 8 to 10 individuals.
