    Background: A robin has built its nest on top of a telephone in a booth at the Navy Ordnance Laboratory in Washington, D.C., and is raising a family of 4.

    The telephone company, in sympathy with the mother Robin, who flew out of the booth every time someone wanted to use the phone, waited and then flew back in, put up another booth alongside with a sign requesting people not to use the booth in which the Robins are ensconced.

    People are being very cooperative.
