This pic reminded me of a friend who called me a couple of years ago in the month of April to say a mating pair of birbs had made a nest in her large Xmas wreath of soft bushy pine boughs on her front door and she didn't know what to do because the birds would fly at her and her family trying to attack their faces and heads every time they came in and out of the door.

I told her she was a terrible house keeper for not removing the Xmas wreath 4 months back and told her to move the wreath and attach it strongly to an upper part of the porch on a beam so the nest is protected and covered and that the parents would find the nest and go to it.

If she didn't move it she and the family would have to exit and enter through the garage every day for the next couple of months or they could still use the front door but they'd have to wear motorcycle helmets for protection against the aggressive parent birbs attacks.

So she got her husband to move the nest with 5 eggs while the parent birbs attacked him but they settled down close by and watched where the nest went. She was happy to tell me the the parents went to the nest immediately after they saw where it was moved to and didn't abandon their eggs. The pair continued to hatch the eggs and raise all 5 baby birbs while my friend and her family continued to get attacked when they entered or exited the house as the birds didn't like the noisy intrusion in their lives.

When the family of baby birbs finally fledged and left the wreath that summer my friend quickly removed the wreath and scrubbed the porch down all the while complaining about the poop that piled up on the beam above and the porch floor for a couple of months. I called her a lousy house keeper again and told her she should have put some newspaper or plastic down under the beam and I told her she'd never be a pet birb owner if she couldn't deal with a little birb poop!

I asked her if she was going to put her wreath outside on her door at Xmas again. She said, "Nope, the wreath went in the trash and there will be no more xmas decorations of any kind on her door again! "
