"We use these nests primarily for the song birds," said Alison Hermance, WildCare's communications manager, as she gestured toward a blue knitted nest carrying baby finches and a gray and white nest full of tiny and eager chestnut-backed chickadees, their beaks wide open in anticipation of a feeding. Baby birds need nests. Knitters need to knit. One thing leads to another and knitters are making nests for WildCare's foster bird program. Over 800 knitted nests have been sent in so far.
