Red-headed Fody

Foudia eminentissima Bonaparte, 1850

The Red-headed Fody (Foudia eminentissima) is a species of bird in the Ploceidae family. It is found in Comoros, Mayotte and Seychelles. The taxon aldabrana, by most authorities considered a subspecies of the Red-headed Fody, has occasionally been considered a separate species, the Aldabra Fody (Foudia aldabrana), in which case the common name of the remaining species often is modified to Comoros Fody. Previously, the Forest Fody from Madagascar was considered a subspecies of the Red-headed Fody. Source: Wikipedia
