In Malay the word ‘Pipit’ is general term that cover many birds that sing a song “pit-pit-pit”.
There are six Pipits in Lonchura sp, and I have only photographed three of them.
(another 3 in my wanted list are: (i) Black-headed Munia/Chesnut Munia (Lonchura malacca) -seen at Kemensah but no photo, (ii) White-bellied Munia (Lonchura lucogastra), and (iii) Dusky Munia (Lonchura fuscans) – only in Sabah & Sarawak (endemic)
This is what Malay called Ciak Rumah – Eurasian Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus)
