Today was the first full day of Spring. The weather was the nicest we've had all year. Our temperature reached 61°F, the sun was shining and there was a nice breeze.
It's time, once again, to give the birds a helping hand. They are coming back to the area and building nests. I saved a large jar of thread and fabric scraps for the birds and bought a new feeder with quarter inch holes. I fill the feeder with the scraps and hang it from a tree branch outside. The birds will sometimes use these scraps to help build their nests and I like being able to recycle the scraps and keep them out of the landfill.
Last spring, I saw some of the threads and fabric scraps in a few of the bird nests around the yard! It was nice to help our little feathered friends!
