I'll use this as an excuse to post a photograph. This guy looks like he's gathering material for a nest. Photographed right next to the cabin at Boot Spring.

Oh, definitely gathering for a nest.  Great photo, Imre!!!!  And now I think we have definitely, officially hijacked this thread. I'll drag it back more-or-less onto the OP's topic by posting this further endorsement of the utility of pocketknives.  ;)
