A Black-Capped Chickadee gathers nesting material on a frosty April morning. The soft bedding is courtesy of my 3 Corgis as they shed their winter coats !

    This is adorable, I use to do the same thing with my dogs hair when they let me trim them. It would be gone in no time. I always thought how warm and comfy those nests must’ve been!

  • Thanks Viv ! My dogs could bed the whole state of Michigan the way they are shedding LOL !!
