Blue legs points to Lesser Masked Weaver.

:lol: Not a little chap... rather non-breeding female (dark eye and white underparts).

The reference to blue-grey legs is a very good ID feature to underline (or add) in your fieldbook! Thanks for the reminder WTM! :thumbs_up:

Which Weaver? Lesser Masked? I had hoped it might be Red-headed but now doubting that. Seen in the south of Kruger.

salamanda, the shot is a bit tough from an ID feature PoV as it was taken with the sun backlighting the subject, obscuring detail... However, I think I can see a hint of a light coloured eye and blue legs / feet. So, I think your ID of LMW is :thumbs_up:
