Artist's Description

“Philectarius socius” – Sociable weavers (versamelvoëls, familievoëls).

Captured near Kuruman in the Northern Cape Province, South Africa.

These birds are collectively weaving their nests on a telephone pole above the ground.

“The Sociable Weaver or Social Weaver (Philetairus socius) is a species of bird in the Ploceidae family endemic to Southern Africa. It is monotypic within the genus Philetairus. It is found in Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa. Their range is centred around Northern Cape Province and southern Namibia. They build large compound community nests, a rarity among birds. These nests are perhaps the most spectacular structure built by any bird.” -Wikipedia
