Many of our successful avian immigrants fall under the 'terrorist' category.
Love yours.

Hello Cloudia, The Java Finch is so cute. I hope this finch is not causing problems among the native birds in Hawaii. Have a great day!

I remember this grey bird from the time I lived on Java. We called them "rice- pickers ".I don't know the Dutch name.
It's a beautiful bird.Thanks for your visit and wise comment!
