  • She will most likely abandon the nest. There is not too much you can do. You will have to either decide between the nest or your flowers.

  • Yes, she will. Just sacrifice your flowers.

  • Leave the nest alone. Enjoy the nest.

  • Throw her out. My son and daughter-in-law have a bird's nest in one of their ferns and the plant is dying. They left her alone the first time and let her eggs hatch. She laid more eggs in the same nest. My son asked me what he should do, and I told him to throw her out. There are too many places a bird can build a nest to have to sacrifice your plants.

  • I know if you pick and egg up and put it back in the nest, she will still come back but actually moving it, I think she will not come back. You do need to make up your mind if letting the plant die is worth it to you. I personally would leave it, once the birds fly away you can move the nest then. I am a fan of animals and nature and would just let it be.

  • abandon it. My dad had a car that a bird made a nest on top of the motor. My dad had to move the nest. The mother never returned to her babies.
