A new bird nest

Recommended Posts

   A robin has been building a nest on top of one of my fan blades outdoors.  Should I let them build it there?  I hardly ever use the fan even in the summer.   About when do they abandon the nest if I leave it?

You are going to have a mess on your porch if you let the robin nest there.  I'm not saying you should remove it but I'm just preparing you. 

Robins are thrushes just like bluebirds so incubation and fledge time is similar. 

Your could expect that nest to be used until June.  I'm not sure if Robins reuse a nest for second brood or not?  You could Google it.

I'm not sure that the robins are still building the nest there as it does not seem to be getting larger or higher.  Maybe they decided that they did not like the slanted blades they were building on.
