MADAGASCAN FODY (COLOUR MUTATION YELLOW)

MADAGASCAN FODY (COLOUR MUTATION YELLOW)

      This wonderful little bird was seen and photographed in the Madagascan Fody aviary .

      The question is could this be a colour mutation of the Madagascan fody or is it a completely different species as the only signage around was for the Madagascan fody.

      Question 2 where in the collection can I find the clouded leopard or as it moved on.

      It's a weaver, not sure which as some are hybrids

      clouded Leopards were in the old leopard exhibit last year

      Unknown...

      Looks like a Fody to me, possibly mutation or unusual colour phase.

      I have seen many of these yellow Madagascar Fodies and they are well recorded in the literature. they are slightly smaller than the red ones and do not have gonads.
