A couple of exotics in Bahrain – Bird records by Jehad AlAmmadi

Jehad sent me some photos of a few birds that I suspect are exotics, escaped cage birds or introduced species, which he took in Bahrain. One of them is Scaly-breasted Munia, a species that also has a similar status in Saudi Arabia to that in Bahrain. The second photos are of some sort of Bishop or Weaver, but what species I am not certain. I am not certain if these birds have self sustaining populations in Bahrain but are interesting never-the-less.
