Hi.  Does anyone have any current information on introduced Nutmeg Mannikins (Lonchura punctulata), especially breeding biology info?  These birds, along with Orange Bishops (Euplectes franciscanus), are making headway in southern California, and I'm studying their habitat use and breeding success here.  Any information you might have regarding breeding of Nutmegs or their possible competition with Chestnut- breasted Mannikins would be much appreciated.
    Thanks,  Scott Smithson
