Bird enthusiasts, I need your help!
I have an air conditioner in the living room that goes through the wall. I have not been out on the balcony very much this summer, though I have opened the sliding door a lot. I've heard scratching and faint chirping that seemed to be coming from inside the air conditioner. When I left for work today, there was a robin on the curb, and (s)he flew right up to my air conditioner -- and I saw two little baby bird heads peeking from a nest on my air conditioner! I'm a "grandma"! I probably shouldn't go out on the balcony at all, right? Just open the door and try to hear the babies? I don't want to scare them. But I'm so proud to be a double "grandma"! The robin parents picked my air conditioner to build their nest Do robins reuse their nests year after year, or should I try to take the nest down when the babies and their parents are gone? Any help or advice would be terrific! I don't want to harm them.
Thank you so much,
Edited to add- if you look closely you can see the baby bird's dark eye down in the nest. He is looking to the right.
