Shaft-tailed whydah Featured Whydahs Print

Shaft-tailed whydah

Shaft-tailed whydah. Male shaft-tailed whydah (Vidua regia) perching on a branch. The long tail feathers are grown by the male during the breeding season and are used as part of a display during competition for females. Once the display period is over, the male sheds his long tail and grows a new plumage similar to that of the female. This bird lives in grasslands in southern Africa, feeding on fallen seeds which it forages for on the ground. Photographed in Namibia
