I was just watching a female Goldfinch - I suspect it was a Lesser but may have been an American - gathering nesting material.  I have two ropes tied together supporting a tree, and where I tied a knot, the ends are fraying.  This bird returned repeatedly to tug out bits of the rope from those frayed ends.

Spring can be so much fun!
