A first sighting is a rare pleasure, something that lingers in the minds of most birders. Today is no exception. What makes this particular sighting so indelible is my awareness that very few people have seen this species. But here, literally in hand, are 12 Olive-headed Weavers - an intriguing and rarely seen species. Courtesy of Robert Prys-Jones, I am sitting amidst the vast avifaunal collection of the Rothschild Zoological Museum in Tring, England. The collection forms a part of the larger faunal collection of the British Natural History Museum.
