So awful. They could have waited a few weeks, and the birds would have fledged. Now they have decaying birds in the walls- how does that make any sense?

I received this in my email. I wrote him back a very kind email:

> I do appreciate your letter and concern for protecting living creatures. When
>I was informed of the events at one of our communities by PETA and the avalanche
>of emails, it was probably the most ironic and depressing moment of my life.
>The irony is huge because I support efforts against animal cruelty myself and
>causes to protect our environment. I take great effort through our business to
>conduct ourselves in a socially positive way and contribute to a better world.
>
>The following correspondence may more fully explain the events and its resolution.

> Sincerely yours,

>Dear Mr. Peterson:
>Thank you for your compassionate response and for taking decisive steps to
>prevent such an incident from happening again. We truly appreciate your obvious
>commitment to humane and environmentally friendly maintenance practices. Please
>consider us a resource in the future if you ever need help with an

>Dear Ms. Simon:
>
>Thank you for your letter below.
>
>A contractor was hired by our Company to repair
>and paint soffits and gutters on one of our buildings
>this month. In the process, on June 7, the contractor took
>it upon himself to go beyond the scope of the work he was
>assigned, and he sealed a gap along a window that contained
>a nestling of starlings. He stupidly and thoughtlessly covered
>the gap and the baby birds soon died. The manager
>involved also failed to respond promptly when notified
>by the resident.
>
>The contractor is no longer performing work for us and
>the manager involved is no longer employed by us.
>
>Its depressing and ironic for me. I am the type of person that
>stops and moves turtles off the road and moves worms
>off the sidewalk onto lawns after it rains. We make huge
>investments in energy efficiency and to reduce our carbon
>footprint. Just few weeks prior, we had a bee infestation in
>a nearby building and we went to the effort of hiring a bee keeper
>to take weeks of work to transfer the hive safely from the building.
>I was very proud of this and shared the environmentally
>friendly solution with all our staff (see attachment). I include this
>because this is the sort of thing I try to have our staff do.
>
>Its my intention to do the right thing always and have our
>staff do the same- unfortunately it didnít work out that way
>on June 7. When you run a business you are ultimately
>responsible for the actions of others, whether it was your intention
>or not, so I take full responsibility and will do my best so
>such things are not repeated in the future.

I received an email from the owner of Sun Residential. He loves animals and he will not use that contractor again. He's very upset about the baby birds. He did not kill the little birds. The contractor killed them.
