The Yellow Bishop or Cape Widowbird (Afrikaans name Kaapse Flap) is a common resident in grassy areas and heathlands.

The Female is a brown bird with a heavily streaked body.

We have only managed to see them twice, in the West Coast Nationall Park and the Harold Porter Gardens.

    We stay in Betty’s Bay and have this beautiful bird come to the feeder every day. Feel very privileged. Stay next to the lakes.
