The Cape weaver (Ploceus capensis) male builds several nests in order to lure the females. It may hang at the base of the nest, upside down, flapping its wings and swaying from side to side. These displays are accompanied by excited buzzing call. Almost endemic to South Africa it lives in grasslands and scrubs and breeds in reeds along rivers and dams, or in trees. It is also found in agricultural landscapes rather than natural fynbos. It avoids low areas and dry Karoo regions.
