Susan Cook: "Early last spring, after cutting my hair, I decided to put the trimmings out for the birds in the garden busily collecting supplies and building their nests. This little robin seemed very taken with my offering, and flew down many times to fill her beak. Later, come autumn, I found her nest, hidden in some ivy. It was completely and cosily lined with my white hair."
