Super shot of this lovely little bird, Louis.
Louis: Thank you Frank.
What a fabulous colour this bird is Louis. It looks as if it is walking on stilts.
Louis: It appears so, gutteridge. Thank you. Sorry, I am so used to Elizabeth following Frank smile

Louis: Great compliment, thank you, Ray.
They are incredible craftsmen, aren't they?! Beautiful shot, Louis!
Louis: Oh they are, Elizabeth. When you watch them working with pieces of grass, I get the idea that this is where humans copied weaving from.

Qu'il est beau ! On dirait qu'il fait son nid.
Louis: Merci Martine. Il est en train de construire un nid, en fait.
How adorable, Louis!
Louis: Men at work, to use Astrid's words. The females just rip it apart, if it is not good enough.

So this is how they start that intricate process then Louis..
Louis: That is so, Chris. When you watch them working with pieces of grass, I get the idea that this is where humans copied weaving from.

An unusual bird photo!
Louis: Working very hard on something else than feeding, Philine smile
Beautiful picture Louis
Louis: Thank you Bill.
Oh, I do love these birds. Excellent shot!
Louis: Thank you Mary. A very industrious little bird.
Great shot Louis, I'm assuming it has put the centre bits it is standing on itself.
Louis: Yes, this type of weaver always use two reeds to hold up the nest. The centre bits, therefor is like a foundation, then.

This is such an outstanding picture. I remember that I googled these little birds... amazing what skills they have.
Louis: The way I see it, they were weaving, long before humankind. Thank you Astrid.
A beauty... busy building.
Louis: Other than humans, they remain clean, when building smile
