This is the original Watercolour painting by Bernard Long.

The weaverbird are a family of Old World seed-eating birds closely resembling finches (hence the alternate name weaver finch). It includes a number of so-called goldfinches and waxbill finches that are actually weaverbirds.

The weavers are named for the highly complex woven nests built by many species, though others build only crude nests, and the parasitic widow weavers build no nests at all.

Most weavers are sedentary, noisy, gregarious, and polygynous, with elaborate courtship rituals.

A detailed and charming watercolour painting from the publication Strange and Curious Creatures, written by Rupert Oliver and illustrated by Bernard Long. 1984.
