Village Weaver northern race2011-02-17 (95)
On 14 December 2010 Shaun McCartney photographed a Village Weaver of the northern subspecies at Welgevonden Main Gate (-24.203333,27.900278). Shaun writes: "It was feeding with about a dozen of the local variety. We observed it for the length of 2 x Windhoek lagers and 1x Jamieson- It was late afternoon (between 17h30 and 19h00). I was in the company of Gerhard Lorist, an accomplished Birder, who noticed the difference between the two. The following day (and on subsequent days) Gerhard returned to try and photograph the bird but it was AWOL."
