White-browed Sparrow-weaver

Plocepasser mahali

This cooperative breeder, with its brown, black and white plumage, is a common sighting throughout much of southern Africa (where it is a common resident in acacia savanna and dry woodland).

We first recorded this sparrow-like weaver in October 2010 while driving the famous “Zaalkuildrift to Kgomo Kgomo” birding route.
