We've had multiple birds' nests
built in the new house.
The first one was when it was pretty much just sticks.
(the house; not the nest...)
I thought it was sweet.
And I left it.
The mama must've been killed;
I quit seeing her,
and the eggs never hatched.
The others were built
when we were a bit further along,
and I didn't want birds pecking at my wires and insulation and what not
so we removed the nests.
One went up in the garage,
and I figured - it's the garage,
it's practically outside.
And I let it stay.
We've relocated the nest,
but they've been quite happy without it.
The little buggars won't leave!
There is bird poop all over the place
and they make such a ruckus.
The only good thing about this
they're quite friendly.
(But I'm never allowing a bird to build a nest in or around the house again!)
