Buffalo weavers nest in open, loose colonies. The nest is built high in a tree in a fork of branches. It is a large, rather untidy structure of twigs and coarse grasses, the short tubular entrance being on the bottom.
There are 17 species of storks, all with stout bodies, long slender legs and slightly webbed short toes. Their claws are blunt and nail-like. Like birds of prey, young storks have two successive coats of down.
