Weaver Nest

Many species weave very fine nests using thin leaf fiber strands, although some, like the Buffalo Weavers, form massive untidy stick nests in their colonies, which may have several spherical woven nests within.  The Sparrow Weavers of Africa build apartment house nests in which 100 to 300 pairs have separate, flask shaped chambers, designed to be entered at the bottom through tubes.  Most Weaver species construct nests that have narrow entrances, facing downward.  All species of Weavers possess the ability to construct a complex woven nest.
