Answer: I've had a similar experience! Birds seem to be creatures of habit and once they find a nice nesting place, they remember exactly where it is. You might be able to protect the plants by stringing fishing line through them and around the supports for the basket; this should confuse the birds and make the pots seem less attractive. You might also try moving them on a daily basis so they seem less "safe". Good luck in outwitting the birds!
