She Did It Again

Well this year I was unable to keep up with cleaning out the old BBQ grill and the bird made her nest again and plopped 6 eggs in it. It has to be the same stupid bird. How many birds make nests in grills every year for 3 years? I clean it out several times and she tries to put the nest in there over and over through the summer. I figured after the eggs, 6 of them, I'm not going to kill unborn babies so I let her go for it. This is the 3rd year she has done this so after they grow up and move out, I am getting rid of this grill!!! We haven't used it ever since the first nest because I thought it was unsanitary after a bird has been pooping on the grate and throwing hay everywhere. Thankfully our new grill has tiny side holes so no birds can get in it!

we had this problem over and over again too. My husband burned off whatever was left over that he couldnt' get out from the nest attempts. Then he stuffed washcloths through the holes of the BBQ grill to plug up the holes, then covered the top of the BBQ with a grill cover. He started doing that 3 or 4 years ago, and no problems with nests ever since!
