A Northern Red Bishop (Euplectes Franciscanus)

A few days ago I thought I had something wrong with my eyes. There was an odd  red spot moving around  on my retina everytime I went towards the stable. Something red bobbing up and down  in my field of vision and  then disappearing.  A day later I saw this beautiful bird sitting in the lemon tree by the stable.  When I got too close  he took flight  and I realized this was what I had seen: his flying technique is unusual and a little clumsy: he is quite a solid little thing and very red and he looks as if he is manipulated by an inexperienced puppetmaster sitting in the sky as he sways somewhat unsteadily  across the land .
