Villa SERIN DU CAP: The charm of Mauritian Architecture

Make no mistake: The Mauritian Serin du Cap is not a Cape canary or a finch. It is in fact a species of weaver, known elsewhere as a village or spotted-back weaver (Ploceus cucullatus). This small yellow bird, part of the passerine family, can be found throughout the African continent and was historically introduced to Mauritius and Reunion Island. During the breeding season, male weavers spend much of their time creating elaborate nests. Their upright posture and piercing gaze have earned them the nickname "the policemen".
