I have an open chimney. there hasnt been a grate on it since i've lived here. I really dont worry too much about it. since i've had the fids, i dont use it anyway. But each spring i get little chimney sweeps nesting in it. And inevitably, each year at least a couple times one of them accidentally find their way to the fireplace. the top of it quite angular, to keep stuff from falling in, i'd guess, so they have a bit of trouble finding their way out. No worries, they always do find their way, but in the mean time i have all the fluttering and cheeping in the fireplace. So last nite we got our first wayward birdie of the season in the fireplace. It was still a bit light outside, so i turned off the livingroom light in hopes he'd see the light at the top of the chimney and find his way out. but i couldnt resist taking a bit of video of him. Excuse the loud tv at the beginnning and the loud cockatoo through the video. Caleb was ready to go to bed and not happy about the delay.  slaph

awww he is CUTE!

we used to get some kind of bird every spring, sparrows mostly.  So we put chicken wire on the top of the pipe and then put the top on over it.  Since then no birdie visitors.

Too cute!

Caleb was screaming? I'd call that whining, and so would most other Too moms and dads. laffhrd

sondra,  laugh  ya know, now that ya mention it, caleb is NOT loud, relatively speaking. skittles is louder by far 9 times outta 10. the only time caleb is loud is when he does the loud high pitched noise. that gutteral sound he was making in the video is easy to ignore. but it sounds kinda loud on the video, depending on how high your volume is.  soo... i guess i lucked out and my super loud cockatoo isnt really super loud.  smile3

Ya know, we are lucky too, Powder isn't louds mostly. Just when we walk out of the room he panics, but it's slowly getting better with meds.

Caleb is a very special birds and you are a special lady.
