RangerSir has been holding down the fort at home while I have been out working across the state. He has been in a fierce fight against the starlings who were insistent that they build a nest in our gas grill. It was a battle of the wills. He was sure he could put some kind of covering, fencing, mesh or otherwise contraption to keep them out each time he thew their nesting materials away. Each weekend when I got home he would recite his tale of woe about all that he had tried and how each night after work he came home to find a new nest when he opened the grill. He finally decided that leaving the gas grill open was the open. Thursday night when I got home RangerSir announced after just over two weeks the starlings have given up and gone elsewhere to build a nest and raise their family.
