This is the third starling nest I have pulled from my BBQ. I need my BBQ. I use it quite often. They like to sit on the shelf and poop. Keep in mind that my BBQ hood was down. They were entering it from the back side. There maybe was a 3 1/2 inch gap between the BBQ and the wall. My good for nothing cat would just sit and watch the nest building. I even took this BBQ to an event and even its absence would not deter these birds. Now I have had to resort to stuffing the entire back part of the BBQ with towels to keep them from nest building. I have to shoo them from the window above my kitchen sink.
Now, if only I could be as persistent and industrious as these two birds, imagine what I could get done!
