No worries Kaapsedraai, @ Adrianp I was thinking Bishop, but none of them have a yellow Breast, unless I'm missing something?

I must be going color blind :) But that looks very yellow to me :)

The only possible bird then can be a Southern Red Bishop, but the color is putting me way off?

I'm sure once you have made up your mind the colour will come right too... You may or may not be colourblind, Ross, but you must remind yourself that you are looking at a photograph! Colours are frequently scewed in pix because of 100s of reasons... :wink:

Otherwise it will remain a yellow-breasted seedeater :twisted:

Google red bishop images, and you will see what Johan is talking about. The "red" in the photographs ranges widely from pale orange to bright red.

BB, with regard to your bird from Century City, I would say it's a Red Bishop.

Thanks MattA. :thumbs_up:

The males are in full plumage, and I took the shot not far from where he was.
