Tilting bird nest with babies inside. What should I do?

2 years ago

My neighbor has finches nesting on her wreath. While the nest looked fine when it was built, as the babies grow it has been tilting more and more. Now it is so tilted that when you stand on the ground you are able to see the 3 babies in the nest. My neighbor and I are very worried that the nest is going to fall. There is concrete below the wreath, and the wreath is about 5-6 feet off of the ground. Should I try to move the nest or just see what happens? Will the babies survive a fall from that height onto concrete? What should I do if the nest does fall? Any information would be helpful.
