    Very cute Idea! -Every spring I've been putting out yarn scraps and dryer lint for the birds, using one of my suet feeders. I also bought a cheap 100% cotton dust mop head at the dollar store that I add strings from. Glad to find that others are doing it, too. The Audubon Society and other well-respected birding organizations approve of the practice. ~vwr

    Yarn scraps for bird nests Put the scraps of yarn (4-8"long) in your suet feeder ($1.99) and voila! You’ve just provided nesting materials for all the birds in your area. I’ve been doing this for years and I never fail to feel a thrill when I see a bright strand of yarn carefully woven into a bird’s nest. You can also fill your suet feeder with raw fleece, if you have any handy. Fleece scraps have always been particularly popular with the birds.

    [Great idea for using yarn scraps] Put bits of natural fiber in a suet feeder for spring nesting material - no synthetics, please! **Cornell Lab for Ornithology approves of yarn scraps for nesting: See "Nesting Materials" at this link ~ http://www.birds.cornell.ed...
