With magnification we could see a piece of string wrapped around the trunk. The bird was tenacious in attempts to get the string free but each time had to be satisfied with a few strands of nylon. You can watch the tug-o-war in this video.
Birds are very resourceful in selecting nesting materials. Man made materials are found increasingly in some bird nests as they move into the suburbs and find less nesting material in our mowed yards and manicured shrubs. Even cigarette filters are incorporated in some urban nests and conceivably they could deter mites as discuss in a previous blog. We will be discussing bird nests in a future blog.
