The Spectacled Weaver (Ploceus ocularis) is a species of bird in the Ploceidae family. It is found widely in woodland, forest edge and gardens of East, Middle and Southern Africa, but is absent from the most arid regions (such as the Karoo) and dense, primary rainforest. This common species breeds in solitary pairs, and both sexes are bright yellow, have an olive-yellow back, black “spectacles” and pale eyes. The male has a black throat.

This incredible bird was busily building its nest right close above our heads at the entrance to Tarangire National Park, Tanzania.
