Feeding birds satisfy mind...

It's always feels good to feed birds. I sont do that but I love people doing that. These days when it's too hot I have kept a pot on the terrace for the birds to drink. But the problem is they sit on the AC and keep straw and other things on it to make their nest. And the problem become severe when the lay eggs in the nest as we cannot destroy their nest. I always like to help them out but what to do when they get us troubles. Do you face such issues? What do you do to resolve such issues? Photo is mine

I never have problems with them building nests in unwanted places, I do have problems with the deer coming to eat the bird seed I put out front at the Squirrel Tree (This was 8 PM last night)

@prashu228, where did you transfer the nest? When I was a kid we destroyed bird's nest and got their eggs which was wrong action, but I was so young 8 years old, did not know about its value, my bad.

I cried when a large bird destroyed a nest that was built by a couple of birds who were smaller in size.

As long as their nest does not ruin your AC I think you should let it be.

@allknowing , yeah, birds are living things. They have feelings of their own. They tweeted in sorrow once their nest get destructed or destroyed. They are God's creature together with humans both part of nature.

If they didn't destroy the AC, then let them be. Most birds here would build their nest on higher trees, none near the house. There are a lot of predators, including my cats.

That's because they know you have cats there at your home so they never will build their nest there. They won't risk their eggs.

We feed the mourning doves here . . . the squirrels and pigeons (about 5 regulars) also come. Although we have had a few nests in our yard, it's rare . . . so we mostly don't have that kind of problem. They just eat and run .

I can't feed them from the balcony because they would return the favor by pooping on it. Despite not feeding them, we had doves scouting the balcony to build a nest. For a while a couple of wood pigeons even thought the balcony was a good place where to "cuddle" in the morning, they would wake me up with their "sounds of love". It's better to take care of birds out of home, in a garden maybe. Here in some public areas it might even be illegal to feed the birds.

Yes at homes it's not good. Better to feed them in some garden. Here I have seen people feed them on road which is not good for them too as they may get hit by the vehicle

@sjvg1976 Yup, poor vehicles. The problem is that birds are often seen as pests, dirty, and might even carry diseases. I love them though.

I don't feed the birds in the summer. They find enough insects in my yard.

Birds are very persistent and sometimes difficult to drive away.
