Blue-throated Bee-eater (Merops viridis)
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.

(1) Pipit Pinang – Scaly-breasted Munia (Lonchura punctulata)
the Juvenile Pipit Pinang
(2) Pipit Tuli – White-rumped Munia (Lonchura striata)
(3) Pipit Uban – White-headed Munia (Lonchura maja)
the Juvenile Pipit Uban
The is the only Pipit that have an English name- Paddyfield Pipit (Anthus rufulus) – but Malay called it Ciak Bendang
This is what Malay called Ciak Rumah – Eurasian Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus)
