A Bird's Nest in the basket

Hungry birds!
The local newspaper tells about a lady who has been unable to use her bicycle because a bird built her nest in the basket about two weeks ago. She decided to not move the nest. Now the eggs have hatched, and in about two weeks the new, brand new birds will fly away. I wonder if they are will grow up to be jailbirds, as they grow up behind the bars?

It is possible to move the nest if you really need to, as long as you do not move it too much at a time so the parents will find the nest. Less than half a metre at a time, every few hours. So it might take several days until the nest is at a good location. Wear gloves and do not touch the chicks.
