Hello again, I've found some more birds on which I need some help.

Just to be sure, is this a Southern masked or a Village Weaver (I think Southern Masked)

Bird 3 Hartswater area May 2012

Bird 3 is correct, southern masked weavers in non-breeding plumage.

Hi everybody.
I am new to birdwatching and need some help. On my last road trip I saw these birds but cant seem to make out what they are. I have got the Ilustrated Sasol bird book.
Please help :pray:

Whilst visiting family in George I saw these birds in the garden. It was raining.

6. Joh is correct. The only other it could have been is the Cape weaver, but there is no hint of eye stripe.
