Red-billed Quelea (Quelea quelea)

Here, we can see the birds sitting in one of the nearby trees. It must have been hundreds, if not thousands, of them gathered at the waterhole. They were sitting there quite silent, but every now and then they started to fly in big flocks around and across the waterhole. Apparently, they wanted to drink some water, but were not brave enough to try it alone. So, I did a little research on these birds and found some interesting facts... (next photo, please)
