    Theese were taken right outside our beach hotel that we stayed in, nearr Mombasa Kenya.

    I struggled in the midday sun to hold the exposure but I will still post em any way.
    Question, How do the eggs and chicks stay in the nests ??? :er::er:

    Awesome shots! I love the colors they have.

    I don't think I've ever heard of a 'weaver bird' in my 14 years of living. Maybe it's because I live in California? Where do these weaver birds live?

    Anyways, great shots. I'm not sure which one I like more. Their both very nice.

    Well, it reads these photos were taken just outside the hotel in Mombasa, Kenya, which is in Africa, as we all know. That is where the weaverbirds live. And their nests are very intriguing, since their opening is at the bottom, which makes you wonder, indeed, how they keep their eggs and young from falling out.

    I see how the light gave you trouble and find you still mastered it pretty well, Deano!

    Thanks for the feedback, theese birds are fabulous to watch and this one tree supported about 70 - 80 breeding pairs of adults.
