Euplectes orix (Southern red bishop, Red bishop)

Distribution and habitat:
Occurs from Tanzania through Zambia and Angola to southern Africa, where it is especially common in Zimbabwe and South Africa. It generally prefers open grassland, marshes and cultivated areas, often near perennial water bodies. It is a major crop pest in the wheatlands of the Western Cape, where mist nets are used to keep them under control.

Food: It mainly eats seeds and other plant matter, with invertebrates taking up only about 0.5% of its diet. It does most of its foraging in flocks, plucking food items from the ground and perching in vegetation.
Best Regards,
