Bye Bye Birdie

While making breakfast yesterday morning, Chris and I made the observation that the birds outside were being especially noisy. As if they were in the same room as us.
Hmmmm. We went outside and soon discovered that some birds had made their home in our kitchen exhaust fan. That can't be good. Birds are cute and all, but they also carry mites and other unsavory crawly things. Plus the thought of having bird poop that close to where we prepare our food was really unappealing.

See that chain? We used to be able to open and close the vent from the kitchen. The chain broke not long after we moved in, so now it is stuck in the open position...making it the ideal spot for a bird to build a nest.

Luckily we didn't have to go to extreme measures to get rid of our unwanted house guests. Chris and I must have been loud enough in the kitchen to spook them away. By mid morning the chirping noises had ceased. I can't even see the nest anymore. It is almost like they packed up their belongings and took everything with them to a new home.
Now we all have peace and quiet.
