    They certainly are:
    he red-billed quelea (Quelea quelea), also known as the red-billed weaver or red-billed dioch, is the world's most abundant wild bird species, with an estimated adult breeding population of 1.5 billion pairs.[2] Some estimates of the overall population have been as large as 10 billion.[3] The entire population is found in sub-Saharan Africa and is generally absent from thickly forested regions and the southern reaches of South Africa. It is a small passerine bird of the weaver family, Ploceidae.
    Your go.
