[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Baya weaver birds are the master Architects in Birdís world. They build the nest in perfect shape and size. The males Build the nest and invite the female to inspect and certify. If the likes it, then it will mate and start breeding. If it doesnít like the nest, the male has to build a new nest. The Baya weaver male, build different nests to please different females. So, number of wives depends on the number of nest it builds.

Here the male bird has started building the nest (The season is already over, may be late nesting?) and the other intruder trying to remove, or build it differently. So, you can see two of them on one nest.-Both are males.

Hi Satish,

Quite surprised to see them build nest now,as you have noted their season for nesting has almost come to end, with the monsoon getting over, the colours are also missing, looks pale. Good capture of the activity. TFS.

Hello Satish, Perfect composition and a nice shot. I think the top bird is watching the one doing the construction. Well done Ganesh

Hello Satish,

What an interesting image with the birds and the nest. You have captured a very good moment with both birds near the nest and one of them in mouvement. Image has a good sharpnes showing fine details of nests structure and birds plumage.

Thank you for sharing,
