    Trileigh, what the heck is it harvesting, a cat’s fur?

    But what a cute picture as always from you, thank you!

      She mentioned in her e-mail that it was probably dog fur.

    HA! wouldn’t it be a hoot if it was cat’s fur!!

    The old rivalry of cats chasing birds… :>)

    Actually, they love cat fur too – a sort of poetic justice! Here’s a Black-capped Chickadee foraging for cat fur from a brush we accidentally left on our deck. They’ll appreciate whatever fur you offer—no dryer lint—as long as it’s not from a pet treated with flea/tick chemicals.

    Well now that I know this I’m going to put my two cats hair out on our deck for the sparrows and chickadees to use! Of course this hair is from their daily brushings. :)

    Thanks for the info!

    One good idea I saw someone use as a cat/dog fur dispenser for nest building is one of those suet holder cages that hangs in a tree.

      A suet holder is a great idea, Mike. I also use mesh bags like the ones some vegetables come in, and hang them outside from a tree or plant hanger. Fun to watch!

    Geez I hate it when I look back and see I didn’t use commas and periods!

    But any ways MIWS that is a very good idea and I think I’ll use that idea of yours! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
