Golden Palm Weaver

Location: Kilifi, Coast of Kenya

This pair of Golden Palm Weavers chose to build their nest over a period of two days in a tree very close to the verandah of the house where we were staying. The male of course did all the work, while in between checking out his progress, the female brought along some tasty caterpillar snacks. The intricate spherical nest grew by the hour as the male laboured away through all the daylight hours.
