East African black-necked weavers are distinguished from the spectacled weaver by black upperparts, wings and tail in both sexes; the female (left upper & rows 2 & 3) and juvenile (right lower) have a diagnostic yellow line between the black crown and mask. The nests were photographed in Kikuletwa and Orkesumet. The rope weaving female is courtesy of Paul Oliver. These photos were taken in Orkesumet, Napilokonya, Shambarai swamp and Tarangire.
