230279224/11/20110We have a small kitchen verandah with half height walls and bars from there to the roof. This is the first year we have had a nest built on the biltong drying wire above the washing machine and tumble drier. The through passage of this busy area did not seem to worry either the Lesser Masked or the Spectacled weavers. They certainly appreciated the preparation of the dog food. When the Spectacled pair were feeding their young we left the food out for a while before putting it out for the dogs so that the birds could feed their young.
