It’s been a tough sell for a northern Iowa car dealership after a robin has built a nest inside a truck. About two weeks ago, a robin decided to make a nest inside a Ford F-250 pickup truck sitting on the lot at Auto Edge in Mason City.
Salesman Josh Homan noticed the nest was built inside the truck after seeing a bird flying out of it one morning. When Homan decided to look in the truck, he saw a nest with three blue eggs sitting it in. Homan says it’s made for a tough sell for the truck, since the mother bird is closely guarding her eggs and can be heard chirping away at anyone who comes near it.
Homan says several people have wanted to test drive the truck, but he’s not allowing it until the eggs hatch, because he doesn’t want to kill a couple of birds just to sell a truck.
