[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this photograph of Masked Weaver in our Yard at the time of Sunset.

To Trek Nature Friends,
I'm a small bird; you have named Southern Masked Weaver. Oh yes, you have given me also a scientific name - Plocues velatus. How attractive I'm if you look at my color of plumage. Recently I've made a nest and thinking to continue my family here till my little ones could fly. If you don't find me here you could search me in open woodland, Savanna, or grassland. I'm 11-14.5 cm long with a short but strong bill. Don't scared looking at my red eyes (smile); I'm not an angry bird. To you my call harsh swizzling, but I like my sweet voice. Do you like my nest? You are welcome to my new nest and please pray for my little ones who will come in this earth recently.

Best wishes,
Masked Weaver

Hello Srikumar,
Excellent photo of this Masked Weaver in flight. Good sharpness in beautiful colours. Wonderful to have this nest in your garden. Fantastic timing.

Hello Srikumar
Truly an natural architect this Masked Weaver. Excellent timing, detail and DOF. A beautiful bird with brightly coloured plumage. I wish the Weaver family well. A great shot all around.

Hello Srikumar,
What a fantastic shot of this beautiful Masked Weaver about to enter it's new home. Tac sharp focus reveals this special moment in fine detail. The freshly built nest is still a lovely green color and shows the hard work it took to build it. I would be thrilled to capture such a wonderful shot as this. Awesome image!!

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of lovely bird and beautiful nest, wonderful natural colors, fine detsils and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Srikumar,
wow! Amazingly clear and sharp, well lighted capture in flight of this colourful weaver bird appoaching his nest under quite difficult conditions of backlight and a busy background of leaves. Beautiful pose with wings spread perfectly frozen in motion. Great work and valuable contribution. Thank you!
With best regards,
