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

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