Re: White headed Munia - boy or girl?

They're hard to tell visually, especially if they are young.
Sometimes you can tell a mature male by the whiteness of his
head. And, only a male will crow - they make a high pitched
one note long whistle, followed by a few other notes and they
look like they're gagging while they're doing it. Besides a
DNA test, the crowing is the only sure-fire way to tell and
I've been working with them for many years. Good luck!
