In a long postponed visit to the Heidelberg Zoo I truly enjoy the enclosure of these birds. I was so excited about the agitation inside and the vibrant yellow that I completed forgot to read the information available about them. Shame on me! Fortunately, the Zoo website allows to check all the species the have. This is a Black-headed weaver or yellow-backed weaver. They inhabit the African savanna and feed on seeds and insects.
