Artist's Description

This is what the nest building is all about, the moment he has been waiting for. A female Speke’s weaver has arrived to inspect this male’s efforts and he appears to be asking her for her opinion. Unfortunately, it seemed to get the thumbs down since literally one second after this shot was taken, I took took the shot below in which he seems to be departing for more building materials. Who knows, maybe the answer to his question was a qualified ‘yes’, depending on how the bathroom extension turned out!
For all the blurb about these fascinating little birds, see Speke’s Weaver 1 or Speke’s Weaver 2
