How can you get rid of a bird's nest?

It's in our back and was wondering if we can do anything about it.

  • Why would you want to? That's where she lives with her babies!

  • We have birds that lay their eggs on a tree in our landscaping in the front of our house in front of our bay window. We always leave it alone.It is only in the spring and always in the same spot for a few weeks. 2 cute!

  • why is the bird bothering you?? Its not good to move it. They dont like it. And if there are already babies inside or eggs, they sometimes wont come back if it was touched.
    Wheres the nest and why do you wanna move it so badly?

  • It's where we are adding an addition. If I have to wait I will.

  • Here the birds have already fledged their babies. Are the parents still working on the nest or bringing food to the babies? Or can you hear the babies peeping? If they are finished with the nest you can go ahead but if they are not and you can wait you should.

  • Its probably best to wait, but if you can't call the SPCA, Animal Control, or some other type of specialist. If they can't help they should at least be able to refer you to someone who can.

  • Well.. you could put on gloves and move it... but.. why would you want to?

  • You can't really move it from where it is without potentially making the mother too scared to come back. If you can wait til the babies have flown, that would be ideal. I know birds never pick very convenient places to nest, do they?
