Scaly-breasted Munias recorded per party hr on the Kapa'a Christmas Count, Kaua'i, 1971-2014 (see Count Page), indicating a significant decline in the area, primarily during the 1970s. Declines are possibly related to increased competition from other Estrilid finches that were increasing during this period.
