A bird family has taken up residence beneath the eave behind some siding. When and how should I get rid of it without causing harm to the birds?

I have a couple of families in mine. They keep coming back and I don't have the heart to get rid of the opening.

Me either. I also have a nest in my exhaust fan vent. I can't even use it for fear of disturbing them. My neighbor said squirrels will get in and nest. i love squirrels too, but don't want them nesting in my house. Help!!

When the babies are gone it does get really quiet so you should be able to tell when you can get rid of it. I haven't set an alarm clock in weeks!
