[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Baya Weaver
(Ploceus philippinus)
Size: 15 cm

Description:
Best distinguished from the streaked weaver by its nest, which is very different.

Voice:
A swallow-like chip; also a harsh, chattering song near nest.

Habits:
Found in open country with some trees, usually near wetlands with long grass. Reported to be reduced in numbers, but recent reports indicate that large colonies still exist in prime locations. The carefully woven nest with a long entrance tube is suspended high in a tree near water.

Distribution:
Common resident breeder through the island.

a very nice image but too much text on the image. very distracting.

Hi Ang,
A perfect shot:
Interesting subject. Interesting action. Great pose. perfect light. Lovely blur background. Lot of details on the subject.
The only little nit is on the presentation: The kingfisher has more colors and is distracting.
