Pictures of the golden-backed weaver, also known as Jackson's Weaver (species Ploceus Jacksoni). I also have pictures of the Taveta Golden Weaver (species Ploceus castaneiceps).

The Taveta Golden Weaver is found mostly in swamps and wetlands. This gregarious species often nests in large colonies. It builds spherical grass nests (as shown in these pictures), usually suspended over water. It does not undergo seasonal changes in breeding plumage.
