Default Definitely not covered by Weber's warranty

When I pulled the cover off my Baby Q today I discovered that it made a great nesting spot for some birds. My wife asked me what kind of birds they were and I told her they were homeless birds because I am about to pitch their nest in the pasture. Big mistake! My wife’s motherly instincts kicked in and she won’t allow me to touch their nest. Guess my Q grill is out of action for a while.

Note to self – next time pitch nest first and tell wife later. Arg!

Hate to say it but based on my experience around the farm the disturbance has probably already scared off momma bird. Watch close to keep wife happy (if wife ain't happy then nobody is happy), but I'd be getting ready for the weekend.

That's an egg in there right? If you move the nest the eggs either won't hatch or they will and the babies will die. They should be gone soon. Frankly, it seems a little late, maybe something is wrong.

There are many grill mods that do not work. The "Mention ideas to the wife first mod" is definitely one. However, maybe if you let the nest stay in the grill, yet open in plain view to other hawks and such makes for awesome nature moments.

I put a large tarp over my dogs kennel.......shade in the summer......rain protection in the winter. This year a house finch built a nest in one of the folds. As I would go into the kennel, momma would fly out as she yelled at me......sometimes twice a day. But she managed to hatch and raise two chicks (momma was also pissed when I used a mirror to check on the kids). Nothing but the nest now.....they flew the coup...

I've got a nest in the Christmas decorations. Looks like I get to leave them up for another month! :)
