Bats in the Belfry

Well okay, really we're talking about birds in the attic.

Every year, for the past 10 years or so, we get these black birds that nest in our attic.  We keep meaning to put up metal, rather than the existing screen covers for the vent holes once the birds are gone for the winter,  but we keep forgetting to do it.

This year is a must do.  I am tired of baby birds falling out of the nest.  Sometimes, momma bird finds her chick and takes him back to the nest, sometimes the baby dies.

Today, there is one that has fallen out of the nest, I've covered the cat door so that Miss Kitty can't get out and kill the poor thing, but I worry that momma isn't going to make it in time to save her chick.  It's sad to see something so defenseless, so scared and lost.

The right thing to do in these situations is to just leave it alone because mom and dad will get the their baby and also because of the balance of nature and all that.

It still makes me sad and I'm tired of being sad about baby birds.  So, this fall when the birds leave, we are definitely taking care of the problem.
