Been there. Still can't believe I waited for them to hatch. But I had a lot of work to do; I failed to properly winterize the watermaker.

I duct tape over the end of the boom to stop them from getting in.

not enough data to advise

If you've got starlings nesting in your Soverel 36, go sailing.
If you've got bluebirds nesting in your Irwin 28, let them hatch.
