Baya Weaver Birds Weaving their nest

Baya Weaver Birds Weaving their nest : I was out on Sunday morning (06-09-2015) around Delhi Public School Tapi at Surat looking to observe and photograph birds when I came across these amazing weaver birds. I was completely engrossed simply observing them at work. They were skilfully weaving their nest and working very hard and I was amazed by this. Although I do not normally take videos and was not prepared for a video shoot, it was so compelling that I thought the students of our birding club would enjoy watching it. So, although the video is shaky I thought it was worth a try. I shot this video handheld with a Canon-7D Mark-II and a Tamron-150-600 mm lens.
