Thanks for C & Cs on my previous upload " Springbok in Namibia," much appreciated

Heres some more archival images, this time its Black Headed Weaver Birds
These birds are called after the complex weave in the construction of their nests
Weavers are very social birds & they may build a large community of nests in one tree with 2 or 3 on the same branch next to each other

Have a great weekend everyone
