Violet-eared Waxbill

Granatina granatina (near-endemic)

We first recorded this waxbill in October 2010 while on a game drive in Borakalalo National Park. Our best ever sightings of this spectacular duo was near Nxai Pan in Botswana, where they were accompanied by many shaft-tailed whydahs; their brood parasite.
