It’s no coincidence why these yellow birds coined the name ‘Village Weavers’. Their intricately woven design will cause your head to make a small rotation as you observe it. How do they weave together so many individual strands of grass with their beaks? Observing them in action as they weave strand by strand is without a doubt an amazing sight.

From the beginning of September all the way through October, as well as from the beginning of January into February, the Village Weaver mates. During each breeding season, the male Village Weaver will mate with anywhere from two to five different females. What is it exactly that causes the female Village Weavers to be attracted to the males? well, it has everything to do with their epic architecture abilities.

These exceptionally skilled weavers might be able to instruct us in the art of braiding. If we possessed these skills, we could create a wide variety of interesting items. But for now, we’ll appreciate the Village Weaver’s marvelous ability to weave these elaborate nests with just their beaks. The natural world is incredibly interesting, and it seems that these colorful birds have a natural talent for building nests.
