Village Weaver

Some Village Weaver Birds (Ploceus cucullatus) building a nest in Northern Ethipia. Although there are very common birds but I like them because of their color and their funny behavior (flying yellow dots, chirping permanently). These ones build a new colony of nests in a eucalyptus tree.
