Red Bishops are very common residents throughout southern Africa. They are gregarious and sometimes flocks number hundreds of birds. They are found in vleis and reed beds, orchards and gardens. In summer males display by puffing out their brilliant red and black plumage while perched or while flying over their territory. Food is grain and seeds while the young are fed insects.
