We had a batch of robins hatch and leave. We left the nest not knowing if it was okay to knock down. I know now it is. But we have an issue.
I was hanging up laundry and had to chase a robin off a swingset in order to get to the laundry line. Later that day it flew so close it hit its wing on my ear.
After about a week, we all went outside saw the robin on the tree where the nest was staring and screeching at us. It came closer and closer and we got the message and went inside. But the next day, it attacked 2 others.
Is this because we left the nest up? Will we get attacked if we look in the nest to check if its safe to knock down?
