Notesrevisited. Mixed colony in 2 trees near garage ablutions. Comment: very active colonies - all three species feeding young. Buffalo weaver nests growing into large combined structures and spreading to neighbouring tree. Colony does not seem to be affected by construction activity & revamp of whole garage. Food & water plentiful due to garage being a major truck stop. Nests not counted.
