Northern Brown-throated Weaver
The white eye is one feature that distinguishes the female northern brown-throated weaver (right lower image) from the otherwise similar female yellow-backed weaver. The top bird was in the Serengeti. The left 3rd row bird was seen on Lukuba Island (1-14); the right 3rd row, at Speke's Bay, courtesy of Paul Oliver. The 2nd row and left bottom photos were taken at Speke's Bay. The other photos were taken on Lukuba Island (9-10), courtesy of Valéry Schollaert.
