Ok, quick preview. Last year, two Carolina Wrens built a nest on a corner shelf in my garage next to the main car entry door. It was never used by them and I suspect do to the frequency of the door being opened or closed. I did find a a baby possum in it though and we had a fun “eviction” process to say the least.
The past few days, the wrens are back a looking for their nest. I just recently removed the shelf, along with the old nest doing a garage/spring cleaning. Just noticed they are building another nest on top of the garage door opener. 1 and half days and it’s starting to become a 3/2 with a basement. I hate to disturb it, but should I be thinking of any safety concerns regarding being built on the opener? It’s right above the lighting which only stays on for a few minutes, but the nest could be touching other electrical components… Thoughts?
Hmmm…What to do?
