Hair wars Leave a reply I put out some of the remnants of my haircut for the birds for nesting material, and it’s proved a hit! First there have been some very sweet little bluetits, diligently hauling away beakfulls of hair every few hours. Everything was peaceful, until… Dum dum DUM! Have you ever seen a more menacing pair? These are great tits, you can tell the difference by their black heads. They were also very keen on my hair, but they were interested in the seeds I put out for them too. The poor little bluetit could only look on in disgust, but this wasn’t the end of her troubles! Seagulls and magpies! The real bullies of the bird world were soon to follow.
