Nutmeg Mannikin

Nutmeg Mannikin (Image ID 35884)
CommentA small flock of Nutmeg Mannikins feeding on grass seeds caught my attention. They were easily approachable and quite content to continue feeding while I lay on the grass to capture them. I entered this image as I felt it was a good example of an introduced species demonstrating typical feeding behaviour and showing good detail.
