Provide Nesting Materials for Birds

I have several wire feeders that I put suet cakes in during the Winter to feed the birds. Just as nesting season comes, I fill them with cut hair (from the beauty shop or that I trim myself), colored pieces of string or yarn, dryer lint and shredded paper strips. I hang them in the same places that I did the suet. That way the nesting materials don't blow away in the wind. The birds are attracted to the colors red and blue.
