Village Weavers are common birds across much of Africa and as their name suggests, they can be found close to human habitation. They nest colonially and in this instance, the colony was behind a restaurant where we stopped for lunch. In these circumstances, I am afraid that photography takes precedence over food. The very close proximity of the colony allowed me to view and photograph the males skillfully building their nests.
