Baya Weaver
(Ploceus philippinus)
Size: 15 cm

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

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

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.

Common resident breeder through the island.

An interesting design of the slot. Interesting composition.

Hi Ang,
you caught just the right moment. Nice composition. Perhaps the picture could be a bit sharper.

Hi Ang!... Bravo!
Impeccable, one of the best photos of the day, both by the scene, as art. Congratulations! TFS, Regards, Jesús

Hi Ang Hwee. A very exciting picture. Nicely framed. I do wish I could see background better but it's still nice. Colours, focus and details fantastic. That yellow head is adorable. It would be a good livingroom painting. Wonderful to see. TFS Trevor
