Baya Weaver Ploceus philippinus  
Baya Weaver
Photographer : © Nikhil Devasar
Location :Mohamdabad Marshes, Haryana, India
Date : 16 July 2006
English synonyms:Baya, Common Weaver
Bird Family :Ploceidae - Weavers & Fodies
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :It's a juvenile in juvenile plumage and obviously male as its nest-building. Must just be imitating Dad like all little boys do. Wonder what the finished product is like, this looks a bit rough for a Baya but I suppose it is a first attempt - Bill Harvey
