A couple of weeks ago we would come home from work and find straw and vines scattered all over our front steps and porch. We cleaned it up the first day without realizing that a bird was building a nest. After the second time of finding the same straw mess we spotted the beginning of a nest but no bird. We swept away the straw and the early attempt at a nest in hopes of keeping a bird off our front porch. We sit on our porch whenever possible and I didn't want a bird interfering with my porch time. The bird ignored our hints and came back again, starting another nest. By the third episode of us cleaning and the bird nesting, we realized that it was a very persistent robin and we gave in to the nest. So now we watch and wait as the bird tends the nest.
