    Interesting! Is the bird hanging upside down from the nest-like thing?

      it’s called weaverbird. i’m not sure if there’s any other bird that builds its nest that way. 🙂

        Oh really? How daft of me. I’ve never seen a weaver bird though heard of it innumerable number of times. Thanks for enlightening me about it, Plaridel. 😊

    What a fabulous capture! There are so many amazing creatures that work hard on a place to raise their young.

    It’s great to see you at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week!

    Lovely shot of the weaver bird.
    We call it the Baya Weaver in India. The nests are gorgeous, the ones built by the Baya weaver.

    And did you know, the male weaver makes multiple nests to please the female. Only when she is approves of that one nest that she gives him a final go ahead to finish building the complete nest, where she eventually lays her eggs.

    Fascinating isn’t it. 🙂

    And mostly their nests are in clusters or colonies.

    Thanks for sharing this lovely shot. Happy week ahead, my friend.

    Born architects. Its amazing how these birds build their nests. So much patience and hard work. The weaver bird gets its name from the way it ‘makes’ (read it as ‘weaves’) it’s nest.
