Chestnut Weaver

Ploceus rubiginosus

We first recorded this weaver in July 2012 while searching for cinderella waxbill with Pete Morgan near Kunene River Lodge. Unfortunately the time of year meant that we were only able to see non-breeding males. We will have to return to see and photograph the males in their incredible breeding plumage.
