All about the birds...

While lying in bed one morning I heard what sounded like the dryer turned on upstairs; the thud every now and again of something being banged around inside. I went upstairs to see, and as I thought, the dryer was off. Then I heard the noise downstairs, so I ventured down and then the noise would stop. As I would go into the other room I kept hearing it again and again but I couldn't figure out where the noise was coming from.As I live in an apartment I thought that maybe it was the neighbors, however they had never been unruly and loud before (surprisingly enough). When my fiance returned home from work at the end of the day I told him what I kept hearing. He informed me that birds were entering through the outside vent and flying towards the heat that was captured from the vent above the stove. I told him that this bird surly had to be trapped, but he said it happened all the time.I even tried turning on the vent to see if it was operable.As the night went on we kept hearing the same noise. FINALLY I convinced him that this poor bird was suffering. As I was in the next room I heard screaming coming from my frightened 2 year old who came running to me telling me how scared she was. Well, it turns out that when my fiance went to take off the filter for the vent to see inside he came face to face with a bird looking right at him who was lodged in between the fan blades that had been stuck upside down for a day (maybe even longer). That poor thing flew out of there so fast (luckily missing the fan that was upstairs and downstairs) and he was able to coax the bird to fly outside via the patio.Needless to say we haven’t had any bird problems since. My 2 year old however I think will be traumatized for life.
