Thank you, we have been here 15 years and this is the first time we saw these in our yard.

You'll probably find them in the very back of your book.  Look for a section with Exotics or Non-Natives or Invasives or Escapees.

Munia were brought to North America as pets / cage birds.  Some escaped or were released, and the climate in SoCal is mild enough to allow them to survive and breed.  There are plenty of examples in SoCal and SoFlo of exotics.  House Sparrows (formerly 'English Sparrows') and European Starlings are the best known nation-wide examples.
