White-headed Buffalo-weaver, Tanzania by 


White headed Buffalo weaver (Dinemellia dinemelli), in Acacia tree. Serengeti National park, Tanzania, East Africa. (Featured in Africans is my Mother Tongue..) They are found in dry savanna, open thorn scrub and acacia woodland. The nest is built high in a tree in a fork of branches. It is a large, rather untidy structure of twigs and coarse grasses, the short tubular entrance being on the bottom. Fine grasses and feathers provide a warm lining and both birds work on the construction.

    Oh my word Carole-Anne, he’s beautiful! The first time I’ve ever heard of him (how can that be?!), had to Google it and make sure it exists! lol! Beautiful capture! Are they fairly common in that area?

  • Thank you Maree. Nice to have caught you out on something !!!!!!! We saw quite a number of them in the Serengeti, but not elsewhere. Cheers, Carole-Anne
