Village Weaver Meeting

20151209 - CS2_7103 - E

At this time of the year the Village Weaver males are very busy building their nests. Once the females of the species have inspected and approved of the sturdy constructions they will lay their eggs and start raising their young.

But today we watched a very interesting behavior. All the sudden the males stopped their building work and met up with some of the ladies just to sit down for a while on some plants before they returned to their work.

What a beautiful and rather special sighting.
