Possible Northern Brown-Throated Weaver - 6/8/2017 - Entebbe/Kibali, Uganda

Hello,

On the road between Entebbe and Kibali in Uganda we saw a tree filled with weaver nests. This may be a juvenile bird. The adults we saw included Vieillot's Black Weaver and Black Headed Weaver. This could be a juvenile of either or some other species.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any help,
Scott

Juvenile Vieillot's I would guess, but anyway it's definitely not Northern Brown-throated.
