A White-Rumped Munia (Lonchura striata) local name: Ciak Tuli busy collecting nesting material.
I like that 2-toned beak.
I wonder why they called it "tuli" meaning deaf. This bird sure not deaf and dumb.
tabib, maybe it looked dumb as in the right pic. hmm maybe tuli also means dumb(bodoh)

Probably because they act deaf (tuli) without moving a muscle, even when you are peeping into the nest entrance hole. Dia buat 'Derd aje'!This is my theory lah.
