masked weaver

Southern masked weaver males make up to 25 hanging nests per mating season (September to January) in hopes of finding a female mate. After building and dancing, a female will come to inspect the work done. If the work is not up to par (females prefer nests made with fresh material and are neat in nature), the female may dismantle the nest, making the male build another one to her liking. If the female is pleased with the build, she will stay and copulate with the male.
