Winter garden birds - Part 4

Even if there is nothing else to see in winter, the garden still hosts a large variety of birds such as this Weaver without its yellow breeding colors.
 Yellow Canary.
 Yellowbilled Hornbill.
A Brown Robin - it is the first time I have seen this bird anywhere and it took me a long time to identify it. As it walks, it also bobs its tail up and down like the Wagtails do and is about the same size as them.
A Groundscraper Thrush.
 Natal Francolin. This pair of mother and her ofspring are now becoming quite tame and almost demand their bread when I get home. :)
 African Hoopoe.
