Little Bunting. Emberiza pusilla

Little Bunting. Emberiza pusilla

I do not remember ever having written about this little bird before, seen here in early December in Mai Po;


This is a small attractive bunting with a highly contrasting head pattern, with a lovely black crown and central stripe with a pale eyering. Often found near water the song is a pleasant two- or three-part series of bright, buzzy warbled notes.
