Magnificent Morning

So when social media got flooded with the Video in which Rahul Baba seen as saying “This morning I got up at night…”, I thought what have forced him to say this unusual (you may even call it illogical J) sentence. I did not reach to any conclusion, though I have some inkling that he might be referring to the time period what we call as “Brahma Muhrat”, or the time period of early dawn.

Today morning when I woke up (not at night 😉 ) and went for morning walk I tried to capture the nature through my phone.

Behold the beauty…And also let me know which one you liked most…

And here in village..2

Nature is full of amazement. More you explore it, more it will astonish you. So when I noticed some beautiful structure made up of blades grass hanging from a tree, it caught my attention.

With little assistance from a countryman and more from Google, I got to know that these beautiful structures are nothing but the nests of Baya Weaver Bird. When you look at these tiny Baya bird and then the nests, you won’t believe that these nests are their creations. The nests are so intricately and beautifully build keeping every aspects of resident’s need that even modern day architects will admire.

I clicked some of the images, with a little difficulty as its position was strategically placed and difficult to reach!

Sharing some of the interesting facts about the Baya Birds and their nests which I came across:

  • These weaver birds found across the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia.
  • Baya weavers are social and gregarious birds. They forage in flocks for seeds, both on the plants and on the ground.
  • The breeding season of the baya weavers is during the monsoons.
  • Only male Baya birds builds the nest and the reason being just to woo their female counterpart!!!
  • So when the construction of nests remain in midway, male Baya birds by flapping their wings attracts the female counterpart and if she gets attracted, then inspects the nest. If she is satisfied with it and the loving bond gets established between them, then the male counterpart goes on completing the nest.
  • Some bird watchers also claim that at some occasions when the female birds have  rejected the nests, some male weaver have been spotted tearing it up, out of frustration! How amazing isn’t it?
  • These nests are generally made up on thorny trees, lying above the water bodies. The entrances to these nests are from a tube which is hanging in bottom of the nests. The reason being very simple that these mechanisms prevent can prevent the possible attack from any predator.
  • These nests works as heat shield and waterproof too.
