lesser masked weaver
Yes that's 100% one of them. Cool ALF where did you find that?
We have also noticed that gator swims right underneath the birds that are building this nest. Ya don't think he knows it will fall do ya...?

This was helpful but not all of them. I still can't see that little bird with the long beek anywhere on their forum. Our forum has better records as far as this goes. Just wish we had the same birds that they do and this would be a whole lot easier. None of my bird books have these birds of SA in them grrrrr.
Seems I need to make a visit to my local bird store.
Ok here's what we got. I haven't a clue as to what bird is what. Can you guys identify them? Also, I did NOT pick the song, a 8 yr old did....LOL. Actually it's kind of cute.
The kids will have to do this over as they are graded on ONLY educational videos. But as you know, we don't know what these birds are.
BIRD NEST.S -
I FOUND AFTER MANY YEARS IN A MARSH - I NOTICED THEN ASKED (DUCKS-UN-LIMITED ) ABOUT THE RED WING BLACK BIRDS AND THIER NEST - THE MALE MAKES AS MANY AS 4 NEST FOR THE FEMALE TO LOOK AT AND THEN SHE WILL MAKE HER CHOICE - ALSO THE MARSH WREN DOES THE SAME - THE MALE MAKES THE NEST - THE FEMALE CHOOSE -
And so it should be tee hee. Oh am I going to pay for that comment...LOL
The kids recorded them building it from start to finish but we don't know what in heck they are.
If those birds is yellow collourd (males) &grey (females) it could be yellow finches (or) otherwhise known as weavers ---- as they typycal build their nests over water on the end the a flexible tree branch of a willow tree ect . In that way snakes do not easy access there eggs or babies.
OK were watching the recording now. Yellow with black heads and dark colors on their wings. BRIGHT yellow.Than these green ones come in..? Than if that's not bad enough some dark color ones not green or yellow fly in grrrr.. Now how in heck do you sort through all of these....
