  1. It seems they aren’t too good at camouflage when man-made materials are around. I had one robin make a nest of shredded paper–white streams hanging from its nest on beam in the barn. Another used blue plastic baler twine. Another used the strips from a lumber tarp.

    (By the way, in other regions where they live, crested flycatchers use shed garter snake skins for their nests. I saw that when I was a kid. How do they find enough? I don’t know. But my brother in Wisconsin says now they use plastic bags.)
