Asian Golden Weavers

Whilst driving to Mae Sot a couple of weeks ago I made a quick stop at a picturesque spot that know to look for a few birds.  Whilst in this area I found a couple of Asian Golden Weaver nests.  One male seemed to be chasing females who  went near the nests - it seems that males build nests to impress females, and this bird was trying to take the courtship to the next level.

Asian Golden weaver is listed by BirdLife International as near-threatened due to persecution and loss of habitat.
