:think: I'm tempted to say the common house or cape sparrow because of the number I see everyday, but I think it's actually the red-quella because of the size of their flocks and their speedy reproduction?

According to that wonderful font of all knowledge, Google, the red- billed quelea is not only Africa's most numerous bird but in fact the worlds most numerous bird. So Sleepyowl21 looks like you were right :clap: :clap: unless Roan had something else in mind.

Okay as I have been away for a while I can only start with an easy one.
What is the most noticeable difference between an East African and Southern African leopard?

They differ in the shape of their spots (or rosettes) the East African's are round while the Souther African's tend to be more square shaped.
