Masked Weaver - Taking a break An adult African Southern Masked Weaver female takes a rest.  During the start of summer, these little birds work relentlessly to build a nest, lay eggs and rear the young.  A process that last about 2 to 3 months of relentless work.  This specific female just could not do more ... she had to take a siesta.  <br />
