With the unusual Spring we have had this year I've seen many birds in our yard that I wouldn't normally see yet. The Robins are back from their southern retreat. A pair of Cardinals were in the tree on our front yard the other day, as well as a couple of Blue Jays as well.
As I have said in previous posts, nothing goes to waste in our house. Almost everything has a purpose. Even the scrap wool left over from knitting/crochet projects, as well as the soft hair trapped in the cat's brush has a purpose. I placed the scrap wool and the hair in the bird feeder in the garden. It's nesting time for the birds and all the wool and hair was gone the next day !
