Anaplectes rubriceps leuconotus
Spotted outside our house...
http://weavers.adu.org.za/sp_rhw1.phpsee the blue box at the bottom of the linkI think this bird is Anaplectes rubriceps leuconotus to be precise.
It is still a Red Headed Weaver.http://lists.ukzn.ac.za/pipermail/sabird...It's maybe a split in the species.http://www.kenyabirds.org.uk/red-headed_...
I don't know if this is any help:http://www.flickr.com/photos/by-ken/3873...
I see where the problem is. The black mask. Still searching
Thanks, Janet :)

@letermagog and livan: I'll try to look for other photos of this spotting that show the back for better ID of these birds. Thanks.
