    Hi all,
    I've been reading through the threads related to the best bedding for nest boxes, and several posts have mentioned pine straw. Is this fallen dried pine needles?

    Yes it is - apparently some places sell dried pine needles; around here, we just rake them up and use them.

    Thanks! I was hoping that was the case - we have an abundance of them here too at the moment. [​IMG]
