In 2007 and 2008, ten mosses and two liverworts were used by Carolina chickadees (Poecile carolinensis) to construct two nests. Dominant bryophytes used in construction were Frullania eboracensis and Platygyrium repens. Bryophytes were not randomly selected, and all taxa were corticolous. Carolina chickadees may be selecting Frullania eboracensis for chemical properties.
