Birds in the basement?

carolbarrel07June 14, 2008

We didn't realize we had a hole in the basement wall, high up in the block. We now have a nest and chirping baby birds. Should we just wait til they leave the nest and then clean out and seal up the hole? Or are we inviting permanent residents by waiting?

Wait, and enjoy them. What is the harm, not much. When they get older and leave, plug up. If you move now, they are pretty much dead.
