*1 Generally the birds don’t take the fibres of this material for their nests as it is a not natural fibre, it is a man-made fibre.
But there are unfortunately in our gardens some delinquent birds who will deliberately it seems just make a hole in our basket liners or peck at the liners with a similar drastic result. I have heard of these types of birds attacking glass doors till they broke- the glass that is, not the birds because they didin’t like seeing their reflections – maybe.
*2 These creations were nicknamed ‘garden ninjas’ by the young boys walking by at the Garden Show in Nambour last year when we had these ‘garden critters’ on display.
