Black-and-white or Brown-backed Munia

Spermestes [bicolor or nigriceps] (= Spermestes bicolor) (Fraser, L 1843)

The black-and-white mannikin or black-and-white munia, is a species of estrildid finch, widely occurring throughout the African tropical rainforest. It has an estimated global extent of occurrence of 4,200,000 km2. It is found in moist savanna and subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest habitat. The status of the species is evaluated as least concern. They are seedeaters, but are known to feed on algae. Source: Wikipedia
