There are 3 species of quelea. The most common quelea is the red-billed quelea. This bird,
approximately 6 inches in length has a conspicuous red bill. Having dull brown plumage, the
male quelea transforms, having brighter plumage during the breeding season. The quelea form
large flocks, sometimes numbering tens of thousands. Seemingly harmless, these masses of
seed-eaters do incredible amounts of agricultural damage in Africa. Quelea can be found in
the grasslands and savannas of Africa.
