Baya Weaver – Ciak tempua

I went again in search for the Baya Weaver on Monday morning at 7:15am. There you are, so many of them flying in flock. This male and female were not far from their nest. I wanted to photograph this bird at the nest. I give up after 45 minutes, and time for work.
(this is the problems of hobby-time constrain, and I have to work to support this expensive hobby! ;))
