Birds' nests : Page 106

the weaver has been brought around the spoke on

the right of the doorway the fifth time, at the point

where the under-and-over weaving began, a second

weaver is started and the nest is finished in pairing.

The more slender rushes are

used near the top so that the

spokes can be drawn in very

closely. The spoke in the

centre of the doorway is now

cut close to the weaving at

the bottom of the opening and

after it has been wet until

pliable it is bent and pushed

up between the weaving of

the upper part of the nest,

beside its own upper end.

A strand of raffia is wound

several times around the ends
