Pine needles are indeed misleading... they look soft and inviting and yet can be poky and sharp when touched the wrong way-- but so beautiful from a distance.
Hi Donna, They are deceptive looking aren't they? Earlier this spring I found a nest at the edge of the pond lined with pine needles in the most wonderful pattern. It was what I call a double nest, the outer walls made in a more traditional way, loved that they used pine needles for their douvet.
I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
