I know this is not a bird but can anyone tell what bird belongs to this nest?
It fascinated us when found in the Mopani area of Kruger in Feb this year.

Hi Elsa :)

I think this is a spiders nest rather than a birds nest :hmz: Don't know which spider it belongs to though!

It looks like a Rain Spider's nest but I am not 100% sure!

Thanks Imberbe, Bobbi and BushFairy,
must say I wondered about spiders nest but then have seen totally different looking nests, covered more in spiders web that were described as being so, in fact very similar to what I had seen a Grey Penduline Tit's nest looking like.
