For you, I have a new problem with two birds near a yellow-fronted Canary, a big one and a more smaller. Two weavers but from two different species, I suggest Village Weaver or Cape weaver for the bigger and Masked Weaver for the other one. What do you think about them?
Near Olifants.

Yellow-fronted Canary (old name yellow-eyed canary)
Crithagra mozambicus Geeloogkanarie

Image

Smaller than a sparrow. Bold facial pattern, grey crown nape and flanks with yellow rump and white tail tip. Female is paler and the juvenile is duller than the female with streaks on chest and flanks. Typical canary song.

Found in pairs or small groups when breeding otherwise large flocks.
Inhabits eastern and northern woodland and thornveld as well as built up areas. Primarily seed eater but will eat small insects. Forages on the ground and in trees.

Cup shaped nest with clutch of 2-5.
