Small, yellow-bellied bird with dark overside and hood, slender black beack and a somewhat greenish fan-shaped tail. This little Passerid was found alone tending to its nest, which was weaved out of dead grass and twigs, it had the shape of a base, very similar to other weaver birds' nests. This bird kept going from the nest to surrounding branches, never straying too far from the area.
I wish I had taken a good photo of the nest but it was under a tree with very poor lighting, so only a black hanging blob could be somewhat discerned from the picture.
