A female 'lesser masked weaver' caught a catterpillar. A biggie by her own size (she is sparrow size) and it kept wriggling and she kept hitting it against the grass stems. Bloody business I would say, wot. The dark spots on the grass stems and on her beak are catterpillar 'blood' spots.
The birds I have shown so far on my site are all rather easy to classify. This is an example of one of the more difficult ones. We have around 9 different types of yellow weaver birds - the males are easier, but the females are difficult. The colours of the eye and beak finalised the categorisation in this case. In winter the male will look just like this one, but with a black beak. In summer the male wears a black mask.
The work week is now going the same way than the catterpillar. Enjoy your weekend!
