(ECNS) -- Some intricately woven nests created by baya weavers were spotted in Menglian Daizu Lahuzu Wazu Autonomous County, South China's Yunnan Province.

The helmet-shaped nests were found hanging from branches of a jackfruit tree.

Ornithologists said male baya weavers make a nest with super craftsmanship to secure it from predators and win a female for the breeding season.

Menglian County has a south subtropical climate. Baya weavers arrive here in every April and leave in August. In recent years, with local people's awareness of environmental protection, the birds have been increasingly recognized and protected.
