I pulled out the ladder and evicted the pain-in-the-arse House Sparrows.
The pair took advantage of a rotten piece of eave trim, made it big enough for them to pass through, and began building their nest.
Climbed on up, removed the rotted board, which I will replace, and pulled out their elaborate nest. I suspect they were still constructing the nest since there were no eggs.
More trim repair is needed, so for now this little nook will remain wide open and exposed. Hoping this prevents the little SOB's from returning.
It's always something...
