This is a teneral male Seaside Dragonlet that I saw in Swan Quarter, North Carolina. Mature females are mainly orange with some black markings, while mature males are all dark blue. New adult (teneral) males like this one start out with thick orange stripes on their abdomens and gradually lose them. (I think it's the same for females, except that their thoracices are mostly orange.)

Red avadavat
India,Rajkot,20-05-2017.

The red avadavat, red munia or strawberry finch (Amandava amandava) is a sparrow-sized bird of the family Estrildidae. It is found in the open fields and grasslands of tropical Asia and is popular as a cage bird due to the colourful plumage of the males in their breeding season. It breeds in the Indian Subcontinent in the monsoon season. The species name of amandava and the common name of avadavat are derived from the city of Ahmedabad in Gujarat, India, from where these birds were exported into the pet trade in former times.This small finch is easily identified by the rounded black tail and the bill that is seasonally red. The rump is red and the breeding male is red on most of the upper parts except for a black eye-stripe, lower belly and wings. There are white spots on the red body and wing feathers. The non-breeding male is duller but has the red-rump while the female is duller with less of the white spotting on the feathers.[Wikipedia].[Photo© - Raju Karia].
