Hi Donna! My! What a dilemma! This brings up questions in my mind about the migratory bird act. Correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it, we are legally (if not morally) bound to protecting the nests of migratory birds. So, you could tell the prospective buyers, "I'm legally bound to protecting these birds until they fledge, then steps will be taken to keep the birds from using the structure next year." Those who know more about these things please jump in here!
