After the first few months of mist-netting, 28 weaver chicks have been recaptured at roosting or foraging sites. Most of these were Southern Masked Weaver chicks. Cape Weaver chicks have dispersed the furthest, with 5 chicks dispersing 0.9 to 14.3 km. The maximum dispersal for Southern Masked Weaver and Southern Red Bishop chicks is about 1 km, with many chicks being recaptured close to where they had fledged.
