The Southern Masked Weaver (Afrikaans name Swartkeelgeelvink) is common throughout most of Southern Africa,

They build distinctive, ball-like nests, mostly near water, with a short entrance tube. They feed mainly on insects, spiders, fruit and nectar.

The female is a bit drab not having that bright yellow colour.

We love seeing them around, noisy loud and always up to something.
