Paradise Whydah - which wouldn't show those yellowish brown underparts.
Pin-tailed Whydah - of which I'd expect the bill to be even redder and the belly to be whiter.
Shaft-tailed Whydah - of which the facial patterns are not nearly as clear as on this bird.
Dusky Indigobird - of which the underparts would not be yellow-brown.
Purple Indigobird - of which the underparts would not be yellow-brown.
Village Indigobird - The more I think about it the more confident I am that this is the right one.

I think Village Indigobird aswel, Pintailed Whydahs seem to be much better marked, and Shaft-tailed I've never seen before :doh: :D

I went birding with the Cape Bird Club this morning at Zandvlei near Muizenberg. We saw this nondescript female something and were discussing it. :hmz: Then someone saw this black chapie with a red bill. I thought it was a seriously lost RB buffalo weaver, but it was not big enough. :naughty: Then I thought, indigobird, and it looked like the village indigobird, but that is way out of range. :doh: The nondescript female matched the one in the book :shock: and so did he :dance:

The nearest other I have seen to this were in Addo, between the main camp and the game gate.
