Shameless Maria - Vagabond

Do you recognize these cute little white and black birds? I don't know why they are called Shameless Maria or Vagabind but there are lots of them here in Águas da Prata.

They rarely fly, and only short distances. They are usually found walking or running along the ground. They are often found along the river having a drink. They are about 7cm tall and are seed eaters.

This is a small collection of photos of them on the streets near our house.

Occasionally they are seen in trees, but because of the small size they are hard to see.

Now that Spring is here in Águas da Prata we see more and more every day. We see them on the streets.

We see them in the parks.

We even see them on the sidewalks at the Chalets.

These pretty little birds are not only everywhere they are ubiquitous!!
