    Don't often get to see something like this...a Grey Squirrel passed away in my back yard natural area this morning. It was raining at the time and before I could step out to pick it up, a Tufted Titmouse spotted it, zeroed right in on the tail, and made several trips with its beak full of tail hairs, I assume for nest building material.

    Agree...was trying to put together sort of a sequence from when the bird first started and then subsequent departures with its beak full of tail hairs

    Those Titmice used to pull hairs out of my dog while he was sleeping!
