South African Photographer Dillon Marsh spent time capturing the telephone pole nests of the Social Weaver bird in the “bleached and barren” Kalahari:
“I noticed the nests seem to be in a constant state of collapse and repair. Once they get to a certain size their excessive weight causes large chunks to fall off…The birds, however, simply start adding onto the nests once again.”
Marsh also observed that locals often assisted the Social Weaver birds by installing wire frames atop some poles to create a framework for the birds to build upon.
That girl Kalahari?..Skinny as a pole, and her weave looks like a total NASTY NEST!
