Java Sparrows at University of Hawaii

Cute little Java Sparrows can often by seen on the University of Hawaii campus.  They are native to Java and other islands in Indonesia and supposedly arrived on Oahu in the 1960s, but may have been here earlier.  They seem to like the seeds in tall grass and weeds, and travel in small flocks.
