702979722/8/201322Large old and now new colony starting in fever tree in 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. Compare Schultz record vm 5207
