How did YOU get in here?

My baby and I were having a nice lazy morning, hanging out in the computer room, talking and playing.  While I was checking my e-mail, I heard a really weird noise coming from the living room.  It sounded like our hamster’s cage had been rattled.  I didn’t think too much of it, since he likes to chew on his cage, but then I heard a strange thumping sound.  So I scooped up Willow to go take a peek.

Imagine my surprise when I walked into my living room to find a small bird, sitting on my couch in front of my living room window.  He saw me, then proceeded to fly right into the window.  I had to look twice, to make sure my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me, and see if he really was inside.  Yep, he was.

So what do you do when you find a frigging BIRD in your HOUSE?

I did the most logical thing I could think of – I called my mom to ask for ideas.  She basically told me to leave my windows and doors open so he could find his way out.  Hmmmmm.

This bird was clearly freaked out, and I’m assuming he saw me as a threat (or at least an annoyance), so I popped Willow in her crib and closed her bedroom door so she wouldn’t get swooped at, then grabbed some bread and tried to make friends with the bird.  I threw him a couple chunks of bread, which he pecked at, so I thought HEY!  What if I make a “trail” towards the door?  Brilliant!

I guess that only works on TV, because he did not follow his “trail”.  He just continued with bashing himself into the window. 

At this point I’m starting to get irritated, because I feel for the bird, I really do, but I want it OUT of my damn HOUSE.  So I took a towel to sheild myself in case he had a hankering to peck at my face (one of my mom’s suggestions) and walked towards it.  He finally flew away from the window and noticed that my front door was gaping open.

He finally found his freedom. 

Talk about a  strange way to start the day!  Makes me wonder what the rest of the day will bring.  Now I just better not find any presents that bird may have left behind!
