Photo Share: Natural Nesting Materials

Your post today (nesting material) reminded me of a photo I took back in 2016. I filled a suet block feeder with hair I combed out of my dog, Walter. The hair was very popular with the sparrows nesting in my birdhouse! Walter was happy to contribute!

What a wonderful photograph! I've found light colored hair is preferred the most by birds but it all eventually goes. Walter's looks especially fluffy. Just think how many baby heads were pillowed comfortably by Walter's kind donation. That's what I tell Dolly when I pluck her long white mane hair. Thanks for sharing, Sarah

Even though I live in Fargo, ND I'm a regular reader of your blog and have learned a lot from your posts. I enjoy the photo share offerings! Kerry
