Black-Headed Canary

This Black-headed Canary (Afrikaans name Swartkopkanarie is a small, pretty canary with an all black head, the female has a grey head but still has the chestnut wing coverts, rump and tail like the male.

They are fairly common and regularly visit water to drink, feeding on fruit, seeds, flowers and insects.

They are often seen in flocks together with the Damara Canary, we saw these at the Abrahaamskraal hide in the West Coast National Park
