The dark cap, light bill and the black flank stripes distinguish the black-capped social-weaver from the grey-capped social-weaver. Both social weavers are northeast African endemics. The 2nd row bird was in Shaba NR (Kenya, 3-13), courtesy of Mike Graham. The other photos were taken in Kitwai, Makame, Shambarai and Loibor Sirret.
