This would be the local nest depot of the wildlife kingdom.

What a great idea and you can watch the birds go shopping.

Has this worked for you?  I put a bunch of winter coat hair that our horses had shed into a similar enclosure.  Not too much was taken, and I only saw birds there twice.  I love the idea, just wish I'd seen more success with it.

i tore out an old wren nest and was amazed how much junk was in there.. like feathers, string, shredded tarp fibers.. so i put lots of different things in here, including yarn and hair.. they seem to like things they can weave with.. 
i actually remember your horse hair post.. so i added cat hair and my old hair brush hair.. and i've seen wrens pick at it..

That's the secret.  Some Sherry hair - how could birds NOT love it?  smile

Mother Nature's little helper! Good for you! Be sure to show us who takes up residence in that super secure space!

ps...thanks for liking my crazy "Robot Rooster" image....

yeah, my luck, a mouse will move in.. it's more for birds to pull nesting material out and use.. we'll see.. i needed to put something in that cute cage..

Nice idea and a result that is not unlike many pieces of modern art I have seen in galleries around the world.
