Bird nest in my attic

Seen a bird fly out of one of my side vents the other day.. I went up to check it out and filled 2 garbage bags up with hay/bird nest.. I went to the other side of the house and found another one.. I left it there for the time being.. This is not a close up pic.. Its easy 3 feet wide and 2 feet across. I patched my screen holes so the little terds cant get back in.. Used a whole bottle of wasp spray in the process.. Not a position I like very well.. Squatted over, wasp flying around you, shooting at em with a spray bottle, trying to stay on the rafters.. Very entertaining.. And HOT!!

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

black birds are usually the birds that makes nest in attics around here... What I cant figure out is why didnt they just make a nest.. Instead of bringing more straw/hay in with them everytime creating one big pile.. Ive been wondering whose been stealing my hay.. Now i know..
