Providing for our Feathered Friends

The bride and I feed birds and enjoy seeing the wide variety of feathered creatures that populate our yard and surroundings.

After years of cleaning out nest boxes and seeing the wide variety of materials used, I decided to assist by providing short pieces of binder twine, unraveled down to the individual threads.

That's the binder twine in the foreground of the shot above, held down by a railroad spike, but easily pulled out by a determined bird.

[Note: please excuse my disgusting-looking coffee cup; I was dunking a biscotti, which left junk in the mug.]
