Now, I hate to be such a grouch, and don't get me wrong, usually I'd fawn over baby birds, but these little buggers are driving me nuts! There's this tree right outside my bedroom window and the birds have taken up residence just above my window. I can hear them screeching constantly, expecially in the AM hours, and when I approach my window the baby birds tend to stop their chattering, but then the parent will come into an adjacent tree and start in with her warning screech until I leave my bedroom, or get completely out of sight! That in itself is horribly annoying, but this is what is really bugging me and what I've come to ask about. I don't have air conditioning in my home and often it gets very warm, and my bedroom is also the only room I can smoke in, so I frequently need to put a fan into my window. As you can imagine this is a definate no-go with mama bird. It doesn't seem to directly bother the babies, but if their mom is too agitated to tend to them it's obviously not going to be healthy for them. Should I sacrifice the use of my window fan, and sometimes the use of my bedroom so that these baby birds can thrive, or should I continue with my life as normal and hope that the birds learn to adapt? I don't mean to sound incompassionate, I just don't know if I'm being silly for thinking that my behavior is effecting the lives of these birds so much.
