They also use dried grasses in their nest construction. It’s best to keep your lawn free of weed and feed chemicals. Other construction materials can include twigs, dead leaves, feathers, plant fluff or down (e.g. cattail fluff, cottonwood down or Canada Thistle fuff).
Avoid using dryer lint. Lint from man made fabrics hardens after getting wet providing poor nest insulation.
