They are so cute Jan! But they have a very strong bill and strong feet and legs for such a small bird! :clap: :clap:

Hi Jan,

Thank you for posting a picture of this, most of the time overlooked bird! The nest of the bird (or should I say birds....) attract a lot of attention but a single social weaver is most of the time neglected.

Best regards,


Rob

Great photo, Jan! :thumbs_up:

Looks like a Marico Flycatcher, though, and not a scrub-robin?

Kind regards,

Adam
