Weaver, Sociable

Unread post by arks » Sun Nov 08, 2009 3:07 am

I was surprised to discover that there is no topic for this little bird, ubiquitous in KTP and the Northern Cape. Here's my contribution, taken in Kagalagadi in September 2007.

In Etosha I pitched my tent under a tree with a nest of these little fellows. What an experience to watch them going about their chores in daytime (the reaction when a raptor passes by !) and to listen to them at night. Reminded me of the grade 8 boys dorms when I was housemaster. Added bonus was the pygmy falcons that shared their nest. Beautifull little raptor.
