Southern Masked Weaver (Ploceus castaneiceps)

South Africa, November 6 & 12, 2022

This was among the first few new birds I spotted on day one of my South Africa Birding & Wildlife Safari. There were several going in and out of weaver nests in a tree of the parking lot of our hotel in Johannesburg on November 6, 2022.

I saw them 10 more times during the South Africa trip, and one of my favorite photos is of one on its nest at the Lower Sabie Camp in Kruger National Park on November 12.
