Welcome to Blooming Friday! This week’s theme is Deserted. Although I have used two of these photos in my earlier posts, they best sum up the title of this post.
The nests of the weaver birds on a coconut tree. I came across this amazing sight last September in my cousin’s village, which is about 250 kms from where I live.
There must have been about 50 nests on that tree but I didn’t see nor hear a bird! Weaver birds belong to the family Ploceidae and they are small passerine birds related to the finches. They get their because of the elaborate nests that they weave. The nests vary in size, shape, and material used depending on the species. Most species weave nests with the narrow entrances facing downwards.
Abandoned nests lying on a grassy patch not far from the coconut tree.
Hope you have a great Friday!
