Birds nest in louvers...solutions?

I don't want to severely affect my attic ventiliation, but is it ok to put window screen on the outside of my louvers to prevent birds/bees/wasps from flying in and nesting in my louvers? Are there any other solutions or less air restrictive methods?

A screen sounds good to me.

Window screen is a bit fine and would eventually become almost clogged with dust and dirt. If the bird is persistent enough, it will get through the screen. I like to use hardware cloth. 1/4 inch works pretty good or you could use 1/8 inch.
