Dryer lint? Just say no!

Dryer lint feels very nice to our beaks and to human hands. But after it is wetted, it compacts and gets crumbly, and can compromise a nest's structural integrity. Natural fibers are much better! And don't set out long ones--we birds can get tangled in yarns, threads, or strings over 4 or 5 inches long.
