We had these birds nesting across the road from our house in Namibia. What struck me was that less than 15 minutes after the first rain of the rainy season, they were flying back and forth with nesting material.

White-browed sparrow weavers are larger than house sparrows (which are about the same size as the grey-headed sparrows in the photo). Their brief song is more musical too.
