The Black-headed Munia also known as Chestnut Munia (Lonchura atricapilla) is an estrildid finch found throughout Asia. There's a subspecies that's endemic to the Philippines called Lonchura atricapilla jagori.

Before the Philippine Eagle was declared as the national bird in 1995, this bird previously held that title.

Unfortunately, most Filipinos mistaken the Eurasian Tree Sparrow as the maya bird.  Access PhilippineBird.com for more information about the Philippines' national bird.
