They are found on the African grasslands (savannahs).
They live on the grasslands.
They are bright yellow underneath and on their heads with a black face. The top of their tail is black and their wings are black and rimmed in yellow.
They often form large groups (flocks).
They eat seeds.
Males build large, fancy nests of grass and twigs that hang off branches with long tunnels into them. They each attract several females (polygamous), who choose a nest and lay 2 - 3 eggs in it. Females warm (incubate) the eggs and feed their young.
Species: T. cucullatus
