This is an African Weaverbird.  Related to the finch family.  One of my favorites because of its elaborate nest building.  I included a picture of the nest.  The male attracts the female during mating season by hanging upside from the nest, fluttering its wings and calling.1875814260_AfricanWeaver.thumb.jpg.82f96099047a59d8067ac1e7827282ea.jpg879318161_AfricanWeavernest.thumb.jpg.9c0a087c9982dc5c2897d13fca64ecc6.jpg

Here are some photos I was lucky enough to get of couple of birds in the same family
