A robin started building multiple nests directly over two coal forges in my husband’s blacksmith shop. She would have been very upset when his students arrived and started firing up the forges. So, my husband tried to discourage her by taking down her nests each day, only to have her return the next day. We strung up twine and foil, but she persisted. It wasn’t until he left a radio on all night that she finally stopped — and built her nest over his pottery kiln.
