the Robin saga continues

Last Saturday I published my account of trying to discourage a Robin who kept attacking my sunroom windows. (click here) My pictures of owls & hawks didn't work very well -- neither did turning on all of the inside lights to max. What did slow him down quite a bit was placing newspaper sheets on the inside of the windows. Now he was just an irregular window warrior.
While out on the screened-in deck this evening, I understood why the Robin was so persistent -- his mate is building the flimsiest nest I've seen in a long time where power & phone lines cross and come into the house -- a few feet from the sunroom!
Now what do I do? Live & let live, I guess!
We'll just have to wait & see if the nest holds up.
