The calls of the black-headed weaver have been well studied, with more than 20 different calls described. These include special calls for chicks, flock contact calls, alarm calls and even a invitation for females to come and check out the male’s new nest!

Black-headed Weaver

Ploceus cucullatus

Weavers are small perching birds related to finches. They are famous for their woven nests!



Size Length 17cm
Weight: Male: 33-47g; Female: 26 – 40g



Although native to Africa, these birds have been introduced to a number of areas including the Caribbean. They are found mainly in bushy savannah and woodland, and often around villages and clearings.



These birds feed on seeds and fruits including grasses, cacti and figs. They also eat insects, such as grasshoppers, caterpillars and termites.



Weavers nest in large colonies, with males building hanging nests, woven from reeds or palm leaves. The female lays 2 – 4 eggs, which she incubate for around 12 days before they hatch.



These birds are not considered threatened in the wild as their population is large and appears stable.
