Hair-Crazed Titmouses, Wrens and Odd Nests, Thrasher Babies
Note the fluffy stuff in that circular thing. The circular device was originally meant to hold an ear of field corn. This would then hang from a tree to feed the squirrel-rodents. Instead I turned it upside down and now fill it twice a week with my pets' hair, particular the dog's. But I put human hair in it too when I clean my hair brush!
The titmouses love this hair and its real fun to watch one of these cute little birds fill their beak with dog hair and try to get it all...MUST GET IT ALL! The eggs need to be nestled in softness, must get it all!
It was cute as all get out.
The top picture is a parent thrasher warning its youngster, in the bottom pic above, to be still and not move. This is because I was peeking into bushes where young thrashers had fledged. Note the bottom picture, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, the little thrasher sat still as I took his pic. "Don't mind me," he seems to say. "I'm just a leaf."
