 Indian silver bill (White-throated Munia) Pictures and Detail

Today, I am going to share pictures and detail of another small bird that can be seen around us in groups. The name of this bird is Indian Silverbill. It is also known as White-throated Munia. The scientific name of this bird is Euodice malabarica. This is the second Munia bird, I am going to present to you. Earlier, I  shared pictures and detail of scaly-breasted munia, a variety of munia birds that we can easily spot around.

I found Silverbill Munia in a group as we mostly find small birds in a group. This munia is believed to be a close relative of the African silverbill. This estrildid finch belongs to the family of seed-eating small birds and we can find many similar-looking small birds in this family. It is common to find small groups of these birds in small grasslands.

This small bird is mainly found in the plain region but we can find them in the lower foothills. They are found in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Iran etc. It is common to find these birds around small grass or shrubs looking for seeds.

We can find them in large groups of up to 60 birds. I think that small birds find safety in the company of other birds. In shape and size, these birds are almost similar to scaly-breasted munia but differ greatly in looks and colour. From the above Indian silverbill are grey-brown and from the bottom, they are light grey or pale.

The size of these birds can vary from 10.5 to 11.5 cm for an adult silverbill munia. The bill of these birds is silver grey and the upper part of the body is brown with varying shades. These birds can give 4 to 8 eggs and both parents take the responsibility of hatching the eggs. 

It is nice to find so many beautiful small birds around us.
