I remember seeing a Willie Wagtail land on the bare chest of the late Peter
Congreve who was sun-bathing (sleeping) in a chair on the verandah at The
Eyre Bird Observatory in the early 1980s. The Willie wagtail then started
tugging at Peter's chest hairs in an effort to collect nest material.

If they did it to me they'd only get skin.

Not friarbirds but grey butcherbird pulling hair from the head of my partner
who had long hair.  This was achieved by a fly by at high speed.
