Hi, All!

My daughter just called and said that there's a bird in my home. She wondered how it got in. I've had them in there previously. I'm house and dog sitting, so can't really come to the rescue. She thinks that it's a blackbird or a raven. It presently is in the room where the back door is.

I know that they've gotten in because of a hole in the bottom of the stack (chimney) in the basement. The hole keeps getting bigger because of the house shifting.

I know about closing doors, opening windows and doors, etc.

Do you have any creative ideas about how to get them out without killing them, please?
