Ivy's Avatar OH groomed the dog on the lawn this afternoon and left some hair for the birds to pick up for their nests. In no time the grass looked as if we never had dog hair scattered around and we had bearded blue-tits and wrens even a robin with a "Kaiser Beard" was spotted at some time Very Happy Word must have spread quickly amongst our feathered friends that cheap nesting material was delivered to our garden. In my head I had that picture of my sleeping dog and a little bird plucking her back for more white hair to decorate the nest. Better called her in to prevent accidents.

Faith's Avatar Many years ago my grandma used to leave lint on the top of the coal bunker for the birds to use for nesting.

Fennie's Avatar Never thought to put out nesting material. Good idea.

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I always put the wad of lint from my dryer out - I stuff it in the tangled twigs of a climber. Also, sometimes my hair combings. I would love to see a nest lined with my offerings but I don't go looking for fear of disturbing mother bird.

Fennie's Avatar Don't have a dryer but I have cleaned my hair brush and put out the hair. Very Happy

Faith's Avatar Isnt this a bit yuck? I don't particularly want birds nest lined with my hair.

Fennie's Avatar Ah but I have very nice hair, quite long and fine and very warm; just the thing for a nest come to think of it.
