    We took a trip a couple of weeks back to Silver Stream an hour north of here. We were looking for the high sand dunes to photograph. But they had nothing to offer. But we did see these Weaver nests. We thought an unusual place for them to build their nests? or not ? we have just never seen this before, we have since thought that with the total lack of reeds and or any trees in that place that this flock have compromised their breeding habits for easy food maybe? As why in the first place would they be there with nowhere to nest the way they are used to? Anyhow not a great dilemma they sounded so happy flitting back and forth.

    Bruiser says this last nest is a mansion!!! :lol2:

    What great birds, Dawn. They certainly have made the best of their surrounds & the lack of nesting trees. They certainly do keep up with the maintenance of their dwellings too. They are works of art. :love: The birds are very attractive & colourful. We don't have any members of this family of birds, here in Oz.

    The owner of the house must be very sympathetic to these birds by allowing them to stay there.

    :thanks: for the :photos: !!! :good: :excited:
