Quiet on the birding front.

Everything has been a bit quiet at my feeder due the high winds we’ve been having in Cape Town. This afternoon the wind has not been too bad so I refilled the feeder and no sooner I left the first Cape Sparrows came looking to fill up, both Mr and Mrs Sparrrow and then off they went to be replaced by firstly a Common Starling and then a House Sparrow. Next was a family of four Laughing Doves, a single Rock Pigeon and then a pair of Southern Masked weavers with a juvenile in tow. The female would go fill her crop with seed and then go feed the chick who would vigorously flap its wings. Then the female would hop over the feeder again and fill herself with seeds and then feed the juvenile. I saw this family at least four to five times during the afternoon. The last lot to feed this afternoon was this family of five Common Waxbills.
