FEMALE RED-BILLED QUELEA, LIVINGSTONE MATURATION PONDS, LIVINGSTONE, ZAMBIA

   Even though this photo is not the greatest due to distance and poor lighting we can ID this bird as a female Red-billed Quelea by its sparrow-like shape and bill, whitish eyebrow and whitish throat.  Also, if you look closely at the bill you can see some red, which would indicate this is a breeding female.
   The Red-billed Quelea is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 366.
