Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

An unusual and distinctive forest weaver with a long, thin bill. Males have a black hood and a yellow belly. Females much duller, with a yellow-olive head. Both sexes have yellow edges to the wing feathers. Found very locally in Kenya in the canopy of coastal forest and lush woodland. Usually in active flocks. Somewhat similar to Forest Weaver, but separated by many details, including the yellow wing edges. Vocalizations are typical of weavers: “chek” notes and a squealing, sizzling “radio static” song, often given by a whole group in concert.
