Building material




Someone had been walking their dog in the
forest and had left a lot of hairs behind.
I'm sure the birds appreciated the building material.

  5. Jag brukade sätta fast avborstat hundhår i buskarna, när vi hade våra schäfrar. Fåglarna såg ut som små tomtefåglar med helskägg när de plockade av håret.

    1. Sitä karvaa oli aika paljon. Olisi riittänyt useampaan pesään. :)

    1. Thank you Abrianna! The hairs can be found everywhere. I think we even had some in the freezer when we had dogs.
