I was walking to the ATM in my college campus and a bonanza I had! I remember he other day I was walking that way and just had a glimpse of the bird and two of us were saying they look like sparrows!
I have seen the nests of the Weaver bird before but not a green one. I have mostly come across the dried ones.

Great photos, Mridula!!! i recently saw a baya weaver in our colony too, but have not been able to see its nest so far… and i have only seen the dried ones yet.. wish i could see a fresh one too!!
I have also seen only dried nests. This is simply fantastic.
Beautiful pics…Ive seen the baya weaver bird building its nest as well..I was told by my naturalist friend that a female weaver bird mates only after seeing the nest built by the male..if the female rejects the nest and the bird , the male abandons the nest and goes on to build another nest
Gosh, you meet birds in the most unlikely of places 😉 Quite crafty, those weaver birds!
wow.. i’ve never seen a weaver bird in real life.. i’ve only studied about it in textbooks 🙂 thanks for the picture Mridula.. really lovely!
More great photos. You must have enough for a great coffee table book,
waah waah..Nice capture
Great pics indeed. I’ve read about weaver birds but didn’t feel interested to know more till I saw this post. Great work, waiting for more!
