Nests of social weaver birds are believed to be the largest birds’ nests in the world..reminiscent of giant haystacks, each nest, some of which can be over 20 feet wide and about 10 feet tall, can be occupied by hundreds of sociable weavers at a time..the massive nests, made up of twigs, grass, cotton and other natural materials, have to be constantly maintained by the birds & they do this job diligently.. some nests have been known to last for about 100 years.
