You might try temporarily putting something up on the ledge to make it difficult for the birds to build a nest. I've used wadded up newspapers, stuck with double-sided sticky tape. Use a broom to knock down any nesting materials you discover. Do this once or twice a day and the birds will eventually get the message that the ledge isn't the best place to nest.

Best wishes!
