Double-barred Finch

Double-barred Finch (Image ID 40550)
CommentA family of Double-barred Finches were scavenging the grasses along side the pathway. They would fly along the path in a group, land and eat,then fly and eat again. It was impossible to follow without disturbing them so I sat in wait under the protection of the opposite wall of grass in the hope they would come back to a section of grass full of seed. It was interesting to see their little bills strip along a strand of grass leaving a near naked stalk behind. This picture shows a bird about to strip away the grass seeds.
