.
Poor indeed is the garden in which birds find no homes!
- Abram L. Urban
.
The Red-headed Finches {Amadina erythrocephala} are nesting en masse in the Butterfly bushes (Buddleia salvifolia) at the pond in my garden (Tarlton, South Africa), and what a noise! They’re sharing their space with the Bronze Mannikins and the buzzing and tweeting fills the whole garden!

Heavily barred under-parts. Found in dry grasslands, thorn veld and broad-leafed woodland.
.
Afrikaans : “Rooikopvink”
.
The Red-headed Finch is a common species of estrildid finch endemic to Africa, where it is found in Kalahari Desert, Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
