There are at least 78 species of Weaver birds, which are also known as Weaver finches.   Most are found in sub-Sahara Africa and tropical Asia.   The ones pictured above were photographed building nests in a bamboo tree in Lalitpur, Nepal.   The Red-billed Quelea is a weaver bird that is reputed to be the most numerous of all birds, in the world. Subsistence farmers in the Quelea's ranges hate them for their voracious appetites for seed grains.
