Nesting Baya Weaver

Posted by M. A. Muin on June 28, 2011 at 3:54 AM

Since i started birding in USM, i've only seen the Baya Weaver (Ciak Tempua) once at snake creek (just beside Durian valley). It was a male but i didn't notice any nest around. I've never seen their nest until recently.

The location was just across the road from the entrance to my workplace, Centre for Drug Research. There is a nice bamboo tree with an Atrocarpus sp. tree on te side. There were at least 10 nest around. Here are some shot of it,
The Atrocarpus sp. tree is also fruiting. I saw Crested Myna feasting on the fruit,

This is how the seed of plants were disperse.... Some other birds

 A juvenile Black Naped Oriole (Dendang Selayang/Burung Kunyit)

A Stork Billed Kingfisher. That's all. Thanks.
