Two From The Gambia (1 Viewer)


It's like water off a duck's back!
These 2 species have had me scratching my head. I think I know what they are and if so, one would be a tick. I'm fairly sure the weaver is common but the eye colour is confusing me. Both taken in February this year at Abuko.

Any help would be appreciated.

Could the weaver be Vitelline Masked Weaver, non breeding bird. And non breeding Pintailed Whydah for the other, Just suggestions.
