    House finches have nested on my balcony for several years. They have created a pile of 3 nests. Should I remove and clean up the area after they depart or just leave the mess alone.

      Hi Lucie, this is totally up to you, but it’s perfectly fine if you’d like to remove those nests while birds are not actively using them.
