The Village Weaver forage and roost in large groups and often with other weaver bird species. The birds look for food on the ground, but also look up to search vegetation and trees. These birds nest in colonies and are very active during the breeding season. The birds fly in and out constantly and make a lot of noise, and you can find up to 100 nests in a single tree. The Village Weaver is among the more common weaver bird species and they are a stocky bird with a strong conical bill and they have reddish eyes. The breeding male has a black head which is edged with a chestnut colour, while the non-breeding males have a yellow head with olive green crown and grey upperparts and whitish under parts. The adult female has streaked olive upperparts, yellow and black wings and pale yellow under parts and young birds are very similar to the female birds.

The Butterfly Pea is in the pea family but surprisingly it is not frequented by butterflies but some people think it resembles a butterfly. The Butterfly Pea is a perennial vine up to three feet long, it is a twining vine and not a climbing vine, like many plants in the pea family it has trifoliate leaves, the entire plant is hairless. This plant has large flowers with one to three flowers together and they can be up to two inches long, later in the season the plants produce flowers that are self fertilise and therefore they never fully form.

The Heliconia – Parrot Flowers flourish in warm, humid climates and some varieties enjoy living in full sunlight and others enjoy shady places, they are also able to withstand extreme cold. These plants are easy to grow from cuttings by dividing part of the roots which are called rhizomes and replanting them. These lovely plants flower for the best part of the year and seem to rest between May and July.

Frangipani (Plumeria) flowers appear in clusters at the end of the branches, and are distinctively scented and their perfume is particularly strong at night which encourages the ‘Sphinx Moth’ to visit and to collect the nectar and at the same time these moths pollinate the flowers. Unlike some flowering trees which bloom for a few days or weeks, Frangipanis goes on flowering for months on end. A few interesting facts, 1) Many Hawaiian ‘leis’ are made from frangipani (Plumeria) flowers, 2) Frangipanis are good hosts for Dendrobium orchids, 3) the frangipani is the national flower of Nicaragua and it features on some of their bank notes. In South East Asia these trees and its flowers are considered sacred. These trees/ bushes are easy to propagate all you need to do is take cuttings from the tips of a leafless limb in spring, you then to let the cuttings dry at the base before planting.

The Little Spider Hunter Bird is a species of long-billed nectar feeding birds that live in South Eastern Asia. Unlike typical sunbirds the males and females are very similar in their plumage, they have a distinctive long beak which other sunbirds don’t, the males have an all black beak but the female has a paler colour to the lower mandible. They enjoy being near nectar bearing trees and they are also very good at pollinating the plants they visit. They make their nests from cobwebs and vegetable fibre which they suspend under a banana leaf or similar broad leaf plants using spiders silk for glue and they normally lay two eggs.
