Looking for nesting materials?

Cattail 1
The seeds are getting really loose! Even a tiny breeze sends one or two off.
Cattail 2
When the breeze picks up, more seeds fly off.
Cattail 3--here comes a big gust of wind!
And here's a big gust!
Cattail 4--Off they go!
Some will grow into new cattails, but they make can make a really soft nest lining, too!

We have plenty of that in our fields now too. I cut my hair this morning and have it in a plastic baggie. I am going to put it in a suet cage for the birds for nesting material.
