Love, you can see how this couple of Yellow Crowned Bishops know to speak its language. By flaring his yellow feathers he most certainly has a hunch to impress the female looking up. Our taxidermist did another great job at this brilliant piece of taxidermy of a male and female Yellow Crowned Bishop.

The Yellow-crowned Bishop (Euplectes afer) is a species of passerine bird in the family Ploceidae native to Africa south of the Sahara. They eat insects, grain, and seeds. It lives in flocks with both males and females. Each male will build two or more oval nests with a top opening, attracting a female to each nest by flaring their yellow feathers and display flights. Yellow-crowned Bishop are gregarious and nomadic, wandering to breeding areas in response to rainfall.
