Default Nesting material, wren.

I know a few people will spread a little nesting material around for the birds in the spring time. To help the birds out ,and to watch them also, I made a few nesting material holders. If you would like to build one here is the link and my working photos. Nest Box Material. Human hair, dog grooming etc. all work well.

This is another holder that I made, perhaps a little easier and cheaper. Holder Number one

A suet feeder also works well to put the fuzzy warms in for them to pluck free.
