Black Phoebe...

These little suckers are messy and demand to nest in my barn roof. I try to knock the nest down as they start building hoping they will find a nearby tree or something.... But they are extremely persistent.

One year I let them nest and have their family in my barn and it was a messy mistake..... My concrete barn isle looked like a white runway strip... it was icky.

Yes, we have them here.

They are super at bug catching, and seem to enjoy building in man-made structures.

Live & let live. It really is in your best interest, no matter how messy you may perceive it to be.

Sounds vaguely familiar. Anyway you can make a nest box/platform and encourage them to use that instead?
