Wildlife 2

The second wildlife encounter was with an animal in the chimney. As I was getting ready for work, I heard a banging in my chimney like an animal had gotten trapped. I opened the damper but it hung on and didn’t fall down. Figuring I would deal with it later, dead or alive, I closed the damper and went to work.

That evening, I prepared to catch it by putting a bucket underneath for the expected rodent. Instead, what dropped down was a bird. The starling then flew around my apartment sending ash everywhere. It finally flew out after I turned on the outside light.
