    man. i had a starling nesting on my waterskis last year in my shed. i was just in there going through things to clean it and organize.

    look at this freakin nest. i think she had thought her babies were vultures. there is as much where she got in as in this nest.:eek:oooh:

    I have to say that maybe the nest was added to in more than one season.

    nope. i just built the shed two years ago. and the grass the nest was built from was tall landscape grass that i have and no one close at all to me has it.

    it came through a small hole where a corner of the particle board was chipped off. there was almost a garbage bag full of the long stiff dry grass there as well as the nest.:eek:oooh:

    i see a starling shoot out a few times when i went into the shed last year. i spent a couple hours asdding 2x4s between the rafters where the sofit was open. now theres no entrance. and the little hole is closed. get r dun before she returns lol.:wink:
