This time of year, birds instinctively put the materials at hand to good use. Here, the downy, gray catkins of pussy willow branches soften a densely woven nest, while dried grasses inside cushion fragile decorated eggs. A trail of feathers suggests that the winged occupant has just taken flight.
To appear more natural, the nest should be a bit irregular -- use bits of branches to break up the circular form. You may want to cut some additional pieces of pussy willow to help achieve this. Choose fresh pussy willow branches, which will bend more easily than dried ones. You can find them, as well as the dried grasses you'll need, at garden centers or florist shops.
