Description

Don’t go near a new nest until the owner has laid eggs. If you do, the bird will choose to leave and make the nest somewhere else. It happened to my mother when there were sparrows making a nest on our roof. And it happened to me when I wanted to take a closer look at this robin! The owner won’t leave the nest after there are eggs inside. So don’t go near a nest until the owner has laid eggs! Otherwise you know what will happen!
