Social Weaver Bird


You think your home gets loud? You haven’t heard anything until you’ve hung out with 400 birds squabbling and squawking in one apartment building. We like crowds. What can I say?

First, we pick out the perfect tree with lots of branches. Then we find large sticks to craft our outside walls. After that comes dry grass to make rooms—pretty much like plaster walls in people’s houses. Finally, we put down soft grasses and whatever else we can find to make it all cozy.

Sure, it’s loud, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
