Notesnests under the roof of the dining room. This weaver has used the old nest as support for a new nest… twice! Despite that it seems the first nest was never selected (short entrance tube). It is part of a “colony” of now 10 nests (counting the “flats block” as 3!) under the same roof, plus another 1 nest under the roof of our house, some 50 meters away. I’m guessing these are all built by the same male, over maybe 3 years? Surely haven’t seen more than a single male or female at the same time.
