Madame Sagá, the noisy and pesty bird, also known as The Village Weaver, Cigua Haitiana and Chichiguao, has made a home in one of the trees in Parque Colón here in the Colonial Zone. During their breeding season they can be very noisy. The tree where they live is not difficult to find because it is full of noise and lots of activity as these birds are trying to get their mates.
This time of year it seems that they abandon their old nests to make new fresh ones. I found one that fell out of the tree. I checked closely and was amazed at the weaving skill this little male bird has. Look at the weave. It is very intricate and tight. What a talented bird he is.
