[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nests over water using fresh, green grass to build its spherical nests. This endemic species is relatively common across its range. Unlike many other ploceus weavers it shows no seasonal variation in plumage which makes the adults easy to distinguish at all times of the year. In colouring it is similar to the Golden Palm Weaver when in its sub-adult plumage but the adult male pluamge (yellow-olive back, wings and tail, rufous crescent on head and rufous breast patch) is very distinctive. In any case the Golden Palm Weaver and Taveta Golden Weaver do not overlap in range.

Hi Everton

Nice POV - especially the diagonal element. Good eye contact and vivid colour.


Hello Everton,
Really like the composition and pose of the bird here..Very nice color and exposure, and the palm leaf in the BG works well..especially since it's a "Palm Weaver" :)

A beautiful image of this brightly coloured bird.
