Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A plain, mostly bright yellow weaver with pale eyes, a black face and throat, and an olive back and tail. An endemic resident of the mountains of western Cameroon and southeastern Nigeria, where it is found in pairs and small flocks, preferring forest and forest edge between 1100 and 2900 meters of elevation. Gives a harsh “schwit” call and a high-pitched song with a wheezy, rattling finale: “chet-che-chi-brzzzzzrrtt”. Male Baglafecht Weaver is similar to Bannerman’s, but has a yellow throat and a white belly.
