This is a juvenile of Baya Weaver that i found in my backyard. This one has fallen from its nest. After taking a few pictures, i put it back on its nest. Its parent built that nest on the accessible spot.
- Spotted in my backyard. Usually, the birds are found in grasslands, cultivated areas, scrub, and secondary growth. They built their nest on thorny trees or palm fronds, and the nests are often built near water.
