Wild Bird nest building materialWild birds have been building nest since the beginning of time, without any assistance from people. Wild birds could benefit from our trash in a curious way. Almost everyone has a clothe dryer with a lint collector screen. That screen should be regularly cleaned to keep the dryer functioning normally. The lint is generally just pitched in the trash along with the dryer sheet. The birds find twigs, leaves and such for building nests. It would be fantastic if they could find those little bunches of dryer lint, which is probably the greatest nest building material ever just lying on the ground along your back fence. People have bird feeders, why not a home building material depot?
