South Africa – Local “pigeons”

Cape weaver bird, West Coast National Park, South Africa

Of course, it’s not a pigeon in today’s picture. Just, this name came to my mind, while waiting for lunch and observing these cute yellow birds. Like pigeons are so common in many places in the world, in that area, I saw plenty of these birds flying between tables, trying to steal some food or begging for leftovers. For me, all pigeons could look like that. 😀

p.s. Who knows the name of this cutie?
EDIT – Thank you for telling me the name of the bird, it’s a Cape weaver bird! 🙂

  1. It’s a Cape weaver bird. They live in large colonies, and the male builds a nest on the tips of branches to deter snakes and other dangers. The nest is entered from below – I’ve often wondered why the eggs don’t fall out. The male may build several nests to attract the females and if she rejects his construction work, he builds a second and maybe a third.

    1. Thank you so much!
      I just added the name to the post. 🙂
      And it’s also nice to read all information about the cute bird! Thanks once more!
