in the vast barren landscapes of the southern kalahari, social weaver birds assume ownership of the telephone poles that cut across their habitat. photographer dillon marsh noticed that the nests seem to be in a constant state of collapse & repair. once they got to a certain size their excessive weight causes large chunks to fall off - the birds, however, simply started adding onto the nests once again. he also observed that the locals often assisted the birds by installing wire frames atop some of the poles to create a framework for the birds to build upon.
