Trapped! Weaver nests as death traps

  • HD Oschadleus


Nests of weaver birds are enclosed structures, potentially allowing birds to be trapped inside. Oschadleus (1996) reviewed several examples of this from the literature. This paper describes several new incidents. Dates and localities are provided in the text: coordinates and additional photos and details of the weaver colonies may be viewed in PHOWN (Photos of Weaver Nests) with web provided in the Appendix.
