Well that's pretty gross since it's inside but it also looks as though there is peeling paint, rotted wood and some flooring problems.  Yuck.

We've found birds nests under eaves, under an upside down canoe, under the porch flooring, etc. They put them everywhere!

Mike took a ladder out of his truck and propped it against the house...

A few days later we discovered a bird nest on one of the rungs with a bird sitting on eggs...it was only about 5 feet off the ground, out in the open. Go figure. 

We did not disturb until they hatched and flew away.

On several occasions. I think it keeps predators at bay. There appears to be two nests green was built more recently.

A number of times my builder husband has had birds build nests in homes he is building. If they are not spotted before the eggs have been laid, they try to work around the bird and wait until the eggs have hatched and the fledglings have left the nest before it is removed and that section of the home is closed in.

WOW, maybe the bird didn't want to sit on the eggs all the time and new the unit (when running) would keep them warm Nathan Gesner .
