Description:

Sparrow-Weavers and Buffalo Weavers at Kakuse, in Northern Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

White-browed Sparrow-weaver nests are conspicuous and well known in Namibia. The birds build retort shaped nests of dry grass,rninitially with two openings at opposite sides. For breeding, one entrance is closed. At the recent Namibian ringers' get-togetherrn(RGT) at Farm Kakuse north west of Tsumeb HDO found a colony of White-browed Sparrow-weavers with some strange nests. The nests had elongated entrance tubes resembling untidy Spectacled Weaver nests. When first found on the evening of 14 May 2010, an adult left the colony, indicating that it was not deserted. On 16 May NT and HDO returned to count the nests and take photographs. The colony was 4-5 km from the farm house, in a small acacia tree, and had 13 nests (location 18°42.422′S 17°34.685′E).
