[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not a very sharp photo but I think still worth publishing. This little fellow came to my bedroom window to complain whenever I was late putting seed in the bird feeder.

The Red-headed Finch, Amadina erythrocephala, (also known as the Paradise Finch or the Red-headed Weaver) is a common species of estrildid finch found in Africa. It has an estimated global extent of occurrence of 1,600,000 kmē. Males have vibrant red heads and chests while the females are duller.

Hi Again,

Another very interesting shot, not the most photogenic pose of the bird, but funny moment, not sure if it yawning or angry :)
