I was so excited to see this bird in my garden yesterday.... O/\ O/\ A lifer.

Oh! has he turned his back on us....tch,tch.. come now, don't play games with us...

Image

turn around, just a little... please, only to see your beak...

Image

there, you see, it was not so difficult. Turn a little more now... slowly...

Image

cheeky little buggar... then he flies down and poses for a full frontal 0*\ -O
What an absolute stunning pretty bird - \O

I honestly thought I would have to return to our eastern shores to see one of these Thick-billed Weavers until I read my bird book yesterday. They are quite common in Gauteng. O:V
