A Bird's nest !
Last few days had been spent generally away from home, so when I got back, there was this surprise guest who seems to have made a rather well knit home on my clothesline. At the first glance this does appear to be done by a Weaver bird. A quick google reveals that these birds are adept at creating complex patterns out of twigs and grass. There is a canopy of trees covering my terrace, so maybe my clothesline is an extension of it for the birds. But I wonder, why here? Had it been abandoned mid attempt and should it now be destroyed. Or should I let it stay?
Correction: This nest appears to be done by a Sun bird, equally adept at weaving.
