This is a very long story...so I'm going to tell you the shorter version...
Apparently, the Woodpecker that was banging away outside my wall was chased out by another bird who invaded it's nest. That's when the Woodpecker began busting open other holes along my Condo walls.
All the fluffing and cooing noises in my wall were coming from the *Starling* couple that moved in. I had the maintenance people come and hole up my walls. But they missed a spot...the spot with the nest.
I knew I was hearing baby birds peeping in my wall, but I didn't realize it was from another bird. (Oh the racket they make at feeding time!)
So, yesterday they pulled out the nest, with 4 helpless baby Starling's inside. I was all glassy eyed and on the verge of tears. (I'm such a wuss.)
I ended up taking them to the animal hospital yesterday and then they will be transported to a bird and wildlife rehabilitation facility. Whenever I talked, they immediately started peeping, but they were so small, they sounded like a dog's squeaky chew toy. I filled a rubber glove with hot water, wrapped an elastic band around it and put the nest on top, along with towels.
Hungry little guy, huh?
(I know it only looks like there are three, but really there was four.)
What a day and what a fiasco it's been for two weeks. Actually, even months longer before that!
