PHOWN at the Stanford Bird Fair

2010-10-02 (78)

The Stanford Bird Fair has become an annual event since 2004 with a variety of bird talks, bird outings and other events. This year, after a talk on "Fascinating Weaver Nests", a group of birders went for a walk to record a Cape Weaver colony for PHOWN. The colony had about 35 nests, high up in a clump of poplar trees at the bottom of a garden. An old stick nest near some weaver nests was known to have belonged to Hadedas but was not currently active. There were 2 or 3 Cape Weaver males in the colony. See more details of this record here. Other colonies recorded at Stanford were records vm111, vm112 and vm113.
