- Plocepasser superciliosus
Length 15-17 cm.
Similar to the White-browed Sparrow-Weaver, but has a chestnut crown and ear-coverts, a narrower white eyebrow, brown rump and different head-pattern.
Open, and often rocky, woodland.
These are ground feeding birds which occur in small groups. They are quiet and unobtrusive (in sharp contrast to some of the other Plocepassers).
