Poor Pipit

The 'pipit' ( Cheshnut Munia) is a very common bird in Bintulu. They have pale blue bill and cheshnut coloured feathers. Feeding on grass seeds, they fly in flocks and produce rather loud continuous echoes of 'pit,pit,' from which derived their name 'PIPIT'( Malay word)
Poor pipit is prey to cats. Here Einstein a Bintulu born cat, seems reluctant to release his priced catch of the day when talked to.
