Madagascar Fody (foudia madagascariensis)
We were in Mauritius as they headed into Winter and the breeding plumage of male birds was fading. This fody would be a uniform vibrant red around the head, breast and underside in Spring/Summer. Photographed at Troup D'Eau Douce, Mauritius. More at "Colin Pacitti Wildlife Photography & Fishing Travels" - www.colin-pacitti.com.
