Mysteriously, my friend Matt Yaeger always seems to have a tinder bundle handy. One day I asked him how he manages. He told me, “Oh, they’re on the ground. Just look for them and you’ll find them.” I didn’t believe him.
But lo and behold, I soon discovered Matt was right! These magically complete tinder bundles are also called birds’ nests. Here’s one I found on the ground while walking my dog Jane the other day.
Interestingly, the bird’s nest appears to have dog hair in it! Seeing as how I found this next door to my house, it’s even possible that the fur came from Greta, my German Shepherd!
