When we were living in the Netherlands, we loved to go to the zoo and watch the weaver birds making their nests. Now that we live in Africa, it’s a blessing to see these birds in our garden! This picture, however, was taken in the National Zoological Gardens in Pretoria, South Africa – we still love going to the zoo.
One of the common birds in our garden is the African yellow white-eye. I love the bright yellow color!
One of my favorite African birds: the greater blue-eared glossy starling. Such magnificent colors, changing from green to blue to purple depending on the light.
