Baya Weaver Nest – Sarang Ciak Tempua

Click the above LOGO for more participation from all over the world.

I found this still incomplete Baya Weaver nest just out side the Raub’s Golf course one Sunday evening.
I waited for a half and hour for the birds, but non came in to the nest. It start to rain and I have to find it the next time.

I photograph this last year (Original Date/Time = 2008:11:23 09:18:49)

For the next few days, I will post much more better quality pics than this.


  1. hi Tabib, those weaver nests are interesting – rather messy compared to most of the African species I know. The nest opening direction and the length of the nests also seem to be rather variable – is that normal? or are the various nests mostly practice nests (and from young males) and that the final nests are mostly more uniform or neat?I would love to hear your insightHappy birdingDale

  2. Hi Dale!,Thanks for a visit.The pictures that I posted are of incomplete nests, so they have variable opening and length.When competed the Baya Weaver here have a nest that look like an upside down flask with long neat entering tube/tunnel. I will post more picture later.Stay tune! 😉
