Still Learning To See

It takes a village…

…a village of Village Weavers, that is! We enjoyed observing a number of weaver species in Botswana. The Village Weavers were among the most fascinating. The large bush, hanging over the river, was festooned with dozens and dozens of the woven nests and a number of the birds were actively weaving more. The birds hang upside down while they works, wings aflutter the whole time. To see a dozen or more of them working simultaneously was quite the sight!

    Birds work so hard to build their little homes! Their homes make it through all kinds of weather…rain, sleet, ice, snow, wind! They may have been the first to use all recycled building supplies too!

  2. So grateful you caught the weavers aflutter, John. Now observers just need to hear the frenzy of sound from those tireless workers. Unforgetable!
