White-headed Buffalo Weaver

White-headed Buffalo Weaver Dinemellia dinemelli
Bilen, Ehtiopia

    We saw this handsome species on numerous occasions during our journey through Ethiopia and it was never shy around human settlement. It forages on the ground for insects, especially beetles and butterflies. Breeding pairs are monogamous and build their nest together.


  1. Also this bird is again very beautiful and special. The colors I always find so beautiful of birds abroad. Very nicely photographed and thanks for sharing :-)

  2. Very handsome too, this red rump is quite particular and reminds me of a scarce species of cockatoos!
