Tatting (Threads) for the Birds?


For all you ornithologists (aka ‘bird-watchers’) and others out there….Does anyone throw their thread ends/bit outside for the birds to use in their nesting activities????

Somewhere/sometime I got the idea that birds are attracted to colorful things and when looking for soft nesting materials would go fo threads to add to their nest.

Any ideas about this subject?    Anyone else throw their thread bit/ends outside with the hope that birds will enjoy them too?

This are the bits of threads that I pulled out of my tatting pouch that have accumulated for the last several weeks.   You can see my preferences for colors.  Lately I have been working with 3 of my favoritest colors:  teal/sapphire, orange, and yellow.
