Harassed, hardworking husbands


Male Weavers have got to be the most industrious, hardworking birds I know.  Common throughout sub-Saharan Africa with their bright yellow plumage and elaborately woven nests, they are harassed and henpecked until they get that nursery basket just right.  If not the female will rip it to shreds and demand a new one immediately.

This poor harassed Cape Weaver male is part of a colony nesting outside a gallery in Kleinmond.
