Red-billed Buffalo Weaver

The red-billed buffalo weaver got its name because they were supposedly seen trailing after herds of buffalo, snatching up the insects disturbed by the large mammals. However, this behaviour has not been accurately recorded again. These birds live in communal nests, with a single male and his harem of females -  they occupy any of several nesting chambers within the structure. Every evening, they arrive home and make a big noise together before climbing into one of the numerous holes in the nest and going to sleep for the night.
