Robin's Nest

We found a robin's nest with three beautiful turquoise eggs this afternoon.
Chad, the young man who helped us erect the greenhouse last fall, was here to confer with us about working on a few farm projects, including my dream garden shed.  When we went inside, we discovered the nest.
That robin must have thought it  had lucked into a Birdhouse McMansion!
Now I don't know what to do. Probably I'll have to remove the nest now so the  robins have time to start over in a new site.  I don't think they will want to raise their young in  a construction zone -especially when we tip the shed over to make it taller.

You can't delay for a few week? Once the eggs hatch, don't think it is too long before they fledge.
