hello

My main interest is weavers, a family of 117 species. As bird ringing coordinator I get to ring weavers (and study them in the hand). I also run a project called PHOWN (Photos of Weaver Nests, http://weavers.adu.org.za/phown.php).

Anyone can take part - you need a photo of a weaver nest or colony, gps coordinates, date, and preferably a species identification and a count of the nests in the colony. If you have photos of weaver nests, please submit them! (read here on taking part: http://weavers.adu.org.za/phown_public.php)

One of the aims of the project is to study colony variation in weavers and there are lots of summaries you can view.
