DIY - Backyard Bird Nesting Materials - Did this today for our spring birds that are coming soon. The alpaca fur, vegetable dyed coconut fibers and natural wool yarn scraps were all purchased on #etsy, and I have plenty left over for re-stuffing. The suet cages are found online for cheap; mine are from mileskimball.com, all three for under 10$ with shipping. Put next to your bird feeders and watch the fun when spring mating season begins. :D
