Baya Weavers and Sparrows

Baya Weaver nestings are a beautiful sight. However do take care when approaching it as they will be spooked if our presence are too near. These shots are taken in a span of 3 years and telephoto lens 500mm and 600mm are used during the shoots. I usually will hide behind some bushes and observed if the birds do come back to the nest before starting to shoot. There are cases I was too near and the birds activities are slower, I will move back slowly and will not try to shoot them again at that site.
