[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The weaver bird (babuipahki) is a sparrowlike bird. There are many different kinds. The male weaves a nest, to get a wife. It has to be a good nest, otherwise no female will chose him. So that means the male bird has to do a lot of practise, before he can make a beautiful nest for his family. This tree in Serengeti is overloaded with weaver bird nests. I have also seen those nests in South Africa.

Hello Monica,
well describing traveller's shot, and good brief notes.
An amazing number of bird's nests on one single tree.
Thank you. Best regards,
