Weaver Bird

The Weaver bird is a common sight in the savannas of Kenya. These small, sparrow-like birds are easily recognized by their pointy beaks and bright yellow bellies. Weavers are well known for their extraordinary ability to build intricate nests using only grasses and other natural materials. Nests can take weeks or even months to complete, and some are so large that they can hold up to a dozen eggs. Weavers are omnivorous and feed on a variety of insects, seeds, and fruits. They are typically monogamous and mate for life.
