Large weaver with a heavy black bill and pale eyes. Juveniles dull, with brown eyes; they can be identified by their overall structure and tendency to associate with more distinctive adults. Found in savanna, woodland, scrub, and cultivation. Usually nests near water. Vocalizations are typical of weavers, “chek” notes and a sizzling “radio static” song, though somewhat lower-pitched. Other golden-weavers are smaller and don’t have pale eyes.
