Spotted Munias

We spotted these Spotted Munias, also called Scaly-breasted Munias, at the Mysore Palace.

We were wandering around the gardens, reveling in the peace there, away from the crowd which seemed to have taken over the museum, when we saw a Grey Hornbill fly past. We went off in search of the bird, which proved too elusive for us. Instead, as we gave up our search and relaxed once more, we spotted these birds perched on a fence. The fence was covered with them, and even as I clicked, many flew off, leaving just these for me to capture. 

It was small things like these that made our Mysore trip memorable.
