NotesMarch 27-29th went to Corumane dam on Sabi river in mozambique. Many spectacled? weaver nests on palm trees - but - did not see weavers taking 'ownership' of nests. heard them often but other weavers around. Rael Loon & I managed a list of 174 comfirmed bird species including buffalo weavers + nests. Red headed weavers, spectacled weavers, lesser and Southern masked weavers. there were about 20-30 palm trees, each had 1-4 nests all surrounding a swimming pool or in the gardens. Many other tree species around, some with weaver nests.
