friend is ripping out shrubs b/c he hates the birds--help
I know somene who just bought a house and he wants to rip out a huge viburnum and rhodie b/c the "bees and birds are all over in/in it". Being a lover of both birds and bees, I ca't see why anyone could be so bothered by birds nesting and a few bees pollinating the flowers, but thats another story. I plant things to ATTRACT both.
Anywho, I have begged him to take a breath, and wait till I can get there and try to properly dig them up (realizing that this MIGHT be easier said than done, as they are pretty large).
My question is...if I find birds nests in there, what do I do??? Is this a time of year where taking their nests away will really hurt them??? I have no choice, cuz if I don't take the shrubs he's gonna spray them w/herbicide and just rip em out.
My heart is breaking over how hateful some people are to nature!!! I know nothing of nesting times of birds so I am concerned. I see the birds in my backyard using my houses still so I am very very worried.
