Male Red-headed Weaver
PHOWN record 25000
Bernardine Altenroxel has uploaded many PHOWN, and other Virtual Museum, photos from around Tzaneen. Yesterday she uploaded this picturesque photo of a male Red-headed Weaver that had started building a new nest, and this submission turned out to be record no. 25000.

Thanks to all participants since every record was a stepping stone to reach this goal!

PHOWN, PHOtos of Weaver Nests, is a Virtual Museum, is a citizen science project of the Animal Demography Unit, to collect and monitor breeding distributions and colony sizes of weaver birds globally. To take part, register and upload records at Virtual Museum (read the "How to" pdf for help).

Take photos of weaver nests anywhere in the world and submit. You can also submit photos that you took a long time ago (if you know the date and place of the nests). If possible, include a nest count, but submit even if you did not count all the nests in a colony. For PHOWN we would like accurate coordinates foe each colony, as far as possible.
