WILDLIFE -- Builders of Large Communal Nests: Sociable Weaver

In the arid region of Namibia in southern Africa stand bizarre-looking trees covered by huge lumps of dried grass. Weighing one ton, they are in fact the nests of the sociable weaver -- one of the world's largest bird nests. Each nest is like a big apartment, with over 100 holes that house some 300 birds. Accompanied by Mamoru Suzuki, who's published many picture books on bird nests, this program tells the story of these little energy-filled birds.
