Gold Finches Like Natural Cotton for Lining Nests

Yesterday, Jared gave us this natural cotton ball made by Wild Birds Unlimited.  He told us that gold finches like to line their nests with it.  Lon hung it yesterday evening and this morning, I saw this finch pulling at it.  

He wasn't satisfied with just a small piece.
He worked his way around the ball.

Here he is, flying away with a good-sized bundle of it that he accumulated as he pulled at the natural cotton ball.

I read on the Wild Birds Unlimited website that July is when gold finches nest.  I can vouch for that.
