There was a bird’s nest in the AC unit.

She was now dive bombing me, and U was afraid she was going to attack my face

Over the years, I have found a lot of different things in air conditioning units when doing inspections. Usually, whatever had hidden away in the AC unit for winter shelter leaves when spring arrives, and only leaves the nest behind. That happened when I was cleaning my own air conditioning unit. The difference this time was that I found a bird’s nest, and it had eggs in it. Why the mother left her nest and babies behind was beyond me, but I had to get the air conditioning unit ready for summer. I carefully removed the nest and set it aside. I was working in the AC unit when I felt something fluttering around my head. I swatted at it, only to have it peck at my hand. I looked back and there was a tiny bird, and she appeared to be quite perturbed. She went over to her next with the eggs, and then came back at me. This time she was pecking at my hat, and she was becoming quite a nuisance. I didn’t want to hurt her, but I had to get rid of her. I moved her nest even further away from the air conditioning unit, hoping she would move with her nest, but all it did was further her anger. She was now dive bombing me, and U was afraid she was going to attack my face. I moved the nest back to the air conditioning unit, where the bird sat on her nest and ignored me. I put the cover back on the AC unit, letting her happily sit on her eggs, and hoped she would be gone when I finally turned the AC on.
