Golden-breasted buntings (Emberiza flaviventris) belong to the same genus as yellowhammers. However, the other animals with which they share their environments could hardly differ more: rhinos, giraffes, cheetahs and so on for this bunting (in Pilanesberg Game Reserve, South Africa); sheep, possums, rats, an occasional rabbit, etc. for the yellowhammers living here in the Pohangina Valley.
