Silly Robins!

To keep or destroy???

Just discovered this robin's nest in the making.  Been hearing LOTS of noisy activity on the deck.  I know birds usually build more than one nest so taking it down probably wouldn't do them any harm.  But then again it seems kinda mean.  I AM a bird lover, after all...but I don't want to be divebombed by Mr. & Mrs. Robin and all their friends every time I want to sit on the deck...What to do?

It happens a lot on our front porch, too. Along with the robins, we have purple finches and barn swallows (mud nests.....ugh!). I do not hesitate to take them down just because the mess is bad and because we enjoy sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee, breakfast, etc and the birds really present a health issue.
