Dear mcpherson.geoffrey
In order to make sure that PN provides the accurate information of spottings published on it, I took a liberty to curate your spotting, and have added the ID, few keywords and some references. I also included it in corresponding PN Missions, treating African wildlife.
This is a male Baglafecht weaver, one of the common weavers of Tanzania, and judging by its distinguished coloration, I believe of reichenowi subspecies.
The species has relatively wide, but very patchy, distribution in central and eastern Africa; and subspecies found in those could have different coloration.
These weaver birds are usually found in pairs, in woodlands. .
Hope you don't mind my intervention.
Cheers
