Golden Birdie Architect

Here is another installment of my mom's Big World Assignment to the Dallas Zoo.
This is a Taveta Golden Weaver, which lives in Southern Kenya and NE Tanzania in the wild.

The males have beautiful golden coloring.

 
They use all sorts of grasses to build these unique spherical nests with the opening at the bottom of the nest.

 
JB:  "Silly birdie, don't you think your eggs and babies might fall out of there?"
And the Taveta Golden Weaver said, "no JB, we have always built our homes like this." 

I am so glad to have such interesting new birdie friends with such great architectural skills!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

JB isn't that amazing, what works for others, may not work for some. Love the first photo of the bird, especially the colors. Anna :)
