Perhaps I'm repeating what has already been said (if so my apologies), but
in "Nature Australia", Spring 1995 (Vol 25 No 2, pp 14-15) there is a note
by Penny Slater about Yellow-throated Honeyeaters from Tasmania taking human
and animal hair for their nests.  It includes a photo of one in action.
The only other bird it mentions with similar behaviour is the White-eared

Cheers, Rob McNaught
