garden near swimming pool at corner of Kiaat & Van Ek street.(R71).
Comments: About 20 very active village males fighting, nest building
and 'hectic' in fever tree. (Took video not stills for 1/2 hr). This
and other village weaver colonies have become 'alive' during the last
7 days. A few females spotted but chased away by over attentive crowds
of males. Great hectic sighting.
Nests: 22 new/green nests being built. Many other old nests, most have
fallen and are caught in lower thorn branches.
