The bird spikes worked for a few years at any rate, time to find a new solution!

A determined Robin will not take no for an answer.  I've torn down a nest for a week and then been gone one night on the weekend and when I come back to the house, she had built a nest and laid eggs.  They pick a place and then bi-gosh that is where they are going to nest.

Ah, see that 'Solar Disconnect' switch?  There's your problem.  Critters prefer renewable resources.  This wouldn't have happened if you'd stayed 'on the grid'.  Then the wheel on the meter would spin fast enough that the vibrations would have run them off.
