Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Minuscule yellow weaver. Breeding males have a clean black face mask and pure lemon underparts. Females and non-breeding males have a streaked back and pale face and underparts. Found in savanna and sometimes cultivated areas. Usually in pairs or small groups; not as social as some weavers. Vocalizations are typical of weavers: “chet” notes and a sizzling, “radio static” song. Most similar to Slender-billed Weaver, but found in different habitat, and has a much stubbier bill. Separated from all other weavers by its small size.
