Black-headed Bunting

Black-headed Bunting by Ck Leong


I missed this bird when it came calling way back in 2009 on Manukan Island, off Kota Kinabalu.  This time it was much more accommodating,  making daily appearances at the football field near to Bohebukut village on Maratua Island during my visit there in November last year.  We saw a group of 3 individuals feeding on the overgrown grass, including this photographed bird which was blinded on one eye.  My lifer!
