weaverbird tree

weaverbird tree, originally uploaded by seamonkeylifeboat.

i haven't yet seen a weaverbird that i'm aware of - though i've seen drongos, hoopoes, mynas, bee eaters, egrets, green parakeets, and kingfishers - but we found a tree full of their nests. they weave them out of grasses so that they have a long tube at the top and a cozy little basket hanging beneath and are about a foot or more long. here's our weaverbird tree next to the pond and above a tomato and pepper garden minded by some villagers near the winery.
