The Southern Red Bishop like with so many species, it's the male is the most colorful. Also known as the Euplectes orix, it's a small small bird belonging to the weaver family. Typically in Africa it is seen south of the equator.
During breeding season which this must have been they can be found near water in the reeds, grasses and thorny bushes. During the non breeding season they will venture out to the Savanna.
The Southern Red Bishop likes to nest in colonies, often even accompanying other species of the weaver family. The males build the nest to attract the females. They are polygamists so they will build several nests.
