What is it that is tied to the branches of your plant?

Well, I'm glad you asked, Jennifer. It was my quickie makeshift nylon holder for cotton for the hummingbirds to line their nests. Back on Feb 15, I noticed an Anna's hummingbird picking at the twine (also in pic). I'm pretty sure a couple different hummingbirds gathered cotton for about a month after that, then stopped, and now they started picking cotton again last week. Two nests this year?
