Here is one of the different birds we encountered during our Antigua trip.  A Scaly-breasted munia; native to Asia, but prevalent in the Caribbean. Really cute little one about sparrow size.  Travels in flocks. Please enlarge image to see details and colors.

A very nice image, Ed- I'm sure this posting is a first on Naturescapes for this species.

We have seen several images of these little beauties posted here - but they have all been from our friends in India. This lovely shot of yours is up there with the best of them, Ed!

Beautiful colours and details. I also like that OOF background with still enough detail to give a sense of habitat.
