Weaver courtship ritual
As soon as the male has finished building the nest, he tries to attract a female. This is the time for courtship, which consists in clinging under the nest, facing its opening and vigorously flapping wings while uttering very peculiar cries.

After a week, the nest generally loses all attraction and the discarded male abandons or destroys it.
