More Thoreau for your weekend…

How well suited the lining of a bird’s nest, not only for the comfort of the young, but to keep the eggs from breaking!Fine elastic grass stems or root fibers,pine needles,or hair,or the like.Theses tender and brittle things which you can hardly carry in cotton lie there without harm.June 6,1856.
