Can you move a dove nest with eggs?
Similarly, what happens if you move a doves nest?
DEAR ANN AND PAUL: Birds and their nests are protected under federal law that makes it illegal to move a nest that is occupied. However, when the nest is under construction, you can remove it. They have been known to put down a couple of twigs and call it done, so it's hard to know when their nests are completed.
