Spring is here, and birds will be busy building their nests. Give them a helping hand by providing things that they can use while nesting. And, while you’re helping out our feathered friends, you’ll also be adding something pretty to your yard.
Burlap or Other Natural Fiber Fabric
Loose Wool or Cotton (I ordered wool from www.myfavoritesheep.com)
Note: Do not use drier lent because it may contain chemicals that are harmful to birds. Also, refrain from using yarn or string, as they may get tangled around the birds and cause harm.
Pull apart the wire of the whisk just wide enough to insert the moss.
Layer the straw, twigs, leaves, fabric strips, and wool over the moss.
Tie a piece of twine to the end of the whisk. Add beads to the twine then tie the whisk around a branch. Wrap excess twine around the branch and tie it to secure.
Some birds, like Goldfinches, build their nests as late as June, so continue to add elements to the whisk as the birds empty it out.
