A SAD GOODBYE
Non-breeding male Southern Masked-weaver (Ploceus velatus) 15 cm; 34 g. Silver Lakes Golf Estate. Pretoria. South Africa. Taken in our garden. He has completed 40 nests during the past season.
This bird has been living in our garden for the past three and a half years and we have seen him change colour every season. I will never see this bird again because we are moving to another house. Good luck to the new owner.
