 Great  trip  report  :Thumb:
 
 Buns  of  steel  indeed...  
 
 BTW,  this  is  not  he  forum  for  it  but  I  suspect  that  what  you  have  there  is  a  White-rumped  munia  (L.striata)  not  L.Malacca.  Any  pics  showing  the  rump?
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Unlikely,  Venket.  L.  striata  has  a  white  breast  and  belly.  Lemme  see  if  I  have  more  pics  of  the  bird  (a  200mm  lens  is  not  the  best  for  shooting  finches  at  100  feet  in  dodgy  light  Very Happy)

 Hi  Rahul,
 
 Here  in  Mumbai,  we  get  both  species.  L.malacca  is  much  more  common  (And  easier  to  photograph).  To  me  the  jizz  appears  just  right  for  striata.
 
 L.malacca  usually  appears  very  'prim  and  propah'  as  if  dressed  up  for  a  formal  dinner  party  while  striata  usually  sports  the  grunge  look.  Very Happy
 
 Apart  from  the  unscientific  'jizz'  and  'sartorial  preferences'  theory  Smile  other  reasons  for  my  opinion  are
 
 L.striata  -  southern  race  (L.s.striata)  does  have  a  very  white  belly  and  black  breast  including  the  muddy  brown  uppreparts  as  in  this  specimen.  
 
 The  gradual  change  of  colour  from  dark  head  to  streaked  muddy  brown  on  the  neck  and  back  with  dark  edges  to  the  primaries  are  tyical  of  striata.  malacca  will  not  show  this  streaking  or  brown  colour.
 
 L.malacca  has  very  clearly  uniform  rich  rufous  brown  upperparts  except  when  juvenile.  This  is  not  a  juvenile  as  the  belly  is  very  clearly  pure  white.  This  specimen  has  no  rufous  on  its  upperparts.
 
 Maybe,  you  could  see  if  any  other  pics  exist  showing  the  rump  since  that  would  be  unmistakeable.
 
 Apologies  for  setting  off  a  hare  from  this  thread...
 
 Great  trip  and  look  forward  to  the  detailed  pics  of  the  fish...
 
 Regards,
 Venkat
