Don't need any robins on my deck by my grill. Stupid birds. And the sad thing is, once they get a notion to build a nest somewhere, they keep trying to re-build it no matter how many times I knock it down.
Our robins are a different species and you only get one in a garden as they are very territorial. Mine's been around all winter but I haven't seen any building activities yet.
Mrs Wren isn't making use of the blue tits' box this year. Wren's are rather sweet domestically. Mr Wren seeks out nesting spots and shows several to Mrs Wren for her to select the one she likes best!
Goldfinches are around this month. Haven't seen them in this garden before. It'll be interesting to see if they raise a brood.
If you lived here, Pac, you'd be had up by the long arm of the law over for destroying birds' nests! Wouldn't it be easier to move the grill rather than the nests? Unless your grill is built in, of course.
