Helping out the birds

My friend Helen sent me an email today reminding me about helping the birds now at nesting season. I KNOW I've seen others in previous years set out a basket of goodies for the birds to use but for the life of me I couldn't find any of their posts. Of course I may be mistaking one blog for another in my searches. I read A LOT of blogs!

Anyway..in my search to find the sweet basket posts for Helen, I came across another simple solution.
Since I had a nearly empty bag of lemons, I opted for this solution.

I added:
  • yarn scraps
  • thread
  • ribbon
  • dryer lint
  • torn fabric strips
  • Spanish moss
I took a crochet hook to pull some scraps partially out so they'd be more visible for the birds. Not sure if this is needed but I did it anyway.

I hope to see some nests with some fun colors while on my walks this year!!

What a pretty bundle for the birds. That reminded me that I had not done that in many years. Thanks.

I've never tried that, but I have TONS of dryer lint and other scraps I can put out for the birds. Thoughtful as always.
