[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am not an expert birder, but this must be one of the Masked Weavers, which one I am not so sure of, perhaps a birder can help here?
This photo was taken at Shingwedzi restcamp in the Kruger National Park (where else? lol). This little fella, and his mates, were busy with nestbuilding providing the opportunity for many interesting photos.
