Why would I want to remove a Nest?

 

Depending on the circumstances it may be necessary and desirable to remove bird nests, both for safety and convenience. The correct reasons why nest removal is necessary…

The nest has been abandoned after the breeding season has ended.
The nest is unused and has become dilapidated and unsafe for future use.
The nest is in a bird house that needs to be cleaned out for future residents.
The nest is in a dangerous location and brooding birds could become stressed.

In most cases, it is only after the nesting season has ended and the birds have moved on that nests can and should be removed. If the birds have built their nests in poor locations, however, the nest may need to be removed earlier to safeguard both the adults and the chicks they hope to raise. Unsafe locations typically include…

Near a door or active walkway
In gutter or drainage pipe
Inside dryer vents
On equipment, such as a grill or lawn mower
Inside a chimney

If birds have built their nests in these types of locations, it is best to remove the nest and discourage the birds from rebuilding in the same spot. If the dangerous nest already has chicks or eggs, contact a bird rescue organization to see if they can take in the birds until they are mature enough to leave the nest, or else move the nest as little as possible to put it in a safer location nearby.

 

The parent birds will return to the nearby nest to continue raising their young, and after the fledglings have left, steps can be taken to be sure the adults do not reuse the unsafe location.

 


Nests You Shouldn’t Remove

Some nests will not need to be removed or should not be removed regardless of the circumstances unless the proper wildlife authorities are consulted or there are no other options to keep the nesting birds safe. These nests include…

Endangered birds that are unlikely to build a new nest if disturbed.
Raptors or other large birds that will reuse the same nest for many years.
Natural cavities that would be destroyed in order to remove the nest.
Any nest in early summer that may be reused for additional broods.
