building a nest over a small body of water in
The nest is initially built
by the male but eventually the female, seen in the
picture below, comes to help in its completion.
Males in breeding plumage are yellow
with large black patches on the side of the head and throat, a black tail, and
black streaked upperparts, in many way similar to male
Baya Weavers (fig.).
