Cup-shaped nests of song thrush are lined with wood pulp because it hardens into a protective, cardboard-like material.

“The song-thrush (Turdus philomelos) lines its nest cup with rotting wood fibres, which creates a kind of a pulp that hardens into a cardboard-like material.” (Pallasmaa 1995:20)
