A black-backed weaver with a yellow rump and different-looking sexes: the female has a black hood and throat, and the male has a yellow-orange forehead, crown, nape, and neck, with black restricted to the face and throat. An uncommon resident in open bushy savanna with isolated patches of forest between 500 and 1500 meters of elevation, often in disjunct populations. Gives harsh “chittick” calls and a short song that reportedly sounds like “whit-pu pui trrr pui.” Baglefecht Weaver looks superficially similar to Black-chinned, but it always has a yellow throat.
