The white-rumped munia or white-rumped mannikin (Lonchura striata), is the only munia in its range with white on the lower back and rump. Sometimes called the striated finch, it is a member of the Estrildidae (waxbills) and is widespread throughout South-east Asia. It is a tiny gregarious bird which feeds mainly on seeds. It frequents open woodland, grassland and scrub. The nest is a large domed grass structure in a tree, bush or grass into which 3-8 white eggs are laid.
