Birding Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, Namibia

Flamingos near Walvis Bay More Greater Flamingos, viewed literally from the pavement of the main road going into Walvis Bay, just outside the town.
A pair of Cape Sparrows A pair of Cape Sparrows. The male is a particularly handsome Sparrow.
Southern Masked Weaver male, building nest This Southern Masked Weaver male, in full breeding plumage, was busy building his nest in the car park of the Strand Hotel, where we were staying. I don't know how common nst-building is in Swakop in July, but when I was at Okonjima, the Southern Masked Weavers were all in winter plumage.
