White-Headed Buffalo Weaver

Known as the White-headed Buffalo Weaver (the Buffalo bit is derived from their tendency to follow buffalos in order to prey on any insects that they flush), this East African species occurs in Acacia woodland and other wooded habitats in Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia, Sudan, Ethiopia and parts of Uganda. Markus photographed this bird in Kenya.
