Hope and Anxiety

Baya Weavers are house sparrow sized birds. They are master craftsmen. Their nests are the works of great ingenuity. The summer months transiting into monsoon rains witness the intense activity of nest building by these tireless birds.

Male Baya Weavers are more beautiful in comparison to the females. It is they who build the nest. The sole purpose of the nest building is to find a suitable partner and make preparations for next generations.

When the nest reaches the half way stage, male invites the females. They make noises as female weavers fly near the tree. Male weavers flap their wings sitting on their half done nests to attract their attention hoping that one of them may be kind enough to inspect the nest and build a bonding.
