For the gentleman who intends to move a House Finch nest. It would be a
violation of the MBTA
 Here's a quick but inclusive overview:

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, codified at 16 U.S.C. ยงยง 703-712,
is a United States federal law, first enacted in 1916 to implement the
convention for the protection of migratory birds between the United
States and Great Britain. The statute makes it unlawful without a waiver
to pursue, hunt, take, capture, kill, or sell birds listed therein as
migratory birds. The statute does not discriminate between live or dead
birds and also grants full protection to any bird parts including
feathers, eggs, and nests. Over 800 species are currently on the list.
