It was driving me nuts hearing birds scratching around in the vents on the back of the house, especially the one closest to my bedroom window. So Kris made a trip to Home Depot and bought some vent covers and installed them. Yeah, no scratching anymore.
The neighbors were having the same problem. So yesterday they covered their vents as well, only there were babies in one of vents. They removed the nest and put it and the babies in a box near the vents so the mother could come back for them.
She came back and brought all her posse with her! They were swooping all over their yard and ours. They lined the fence and even had a look out in the front yard!
I felt like we were in the movie "The Birds".
Right now things have settled down but I am sure they will be back and nesting in someone elses vents very soon.
