Blue Waxbill

The Blue Waxbill (Afrikaans name, Gewone Blousysie) is a tiny, strikingly beautiful little bird. It usually offers a grass stalk to attract a female.

Usually found in the open Acacia but also favours the dense Mopane. Feeds mainly on seeds but also insects and termite alyates which are taken aerially. We managed to see them at Lake Panic in the Kruger National Park
