The Pin-tail Whydah is a common resident whose habitat is open savanna. It's also a brood parasite (meaning it lays its eggs in a host's nest and leaves it for that bird to hatch) whose primary host is the Common Waxbill.
Nevertheless this morning I noted a female on the fence with the male flying in to display. I set my camera on sports function and snapped away.
