Speckle-fronted Weaver

A beautiful Speckle-fronted Weaver photographed at the Naabi Gate picnic area in the Serengeti. They look like lovely sparrows and I was surprised to discover it was actually a little weaver bird. Turns out there are an enormous variety of weavers, not just plumage but size and shape and behavior. Cool.

  2. What a gorgeous and unusual bird! Wish I had seen it when I was in the Serengeti many years ago.
