This doesn’t make any sense to me on several different levels.

What’s not to get? The rules state the work can’t happen until the birds move. The birds won’t move until the feeding stops. Once the work ends they plan to feed the birds again.
@Duncan: The article is about nesting birds. I don’t think the birds will carry their nests away if they are no longer being fed. Also, birds rarely rely entirely on human-provided food, so even if feeding stops it is unlikely that the birds are going to abandon the area. Any decent-sized stand of trees will have nests in it this time of year. If the concern is disturbing or destroying nesting birds the solution is to wait until fall when birds are done nesting.
Maybe feeding the birds will prolong their breeding period and this might be in conflict with the construction schedule? It is a bit of a strange request for sure.
Hmm my text didn’t appear in the comment. It was simply.
