One bird’s trash is another bird’s treasure

I was staking out a post that was frequented by a pair of tree swallows. A Chipping Sparrow came in with a mouth full of nesting material. Then it just dropped it on the post. It flew off and left it behind.

When the tree swallows came back, the female immediately picked it up and took it into the nest box.
