Later, closer to noon, the dogs barked at a noise coming from the stove's chimney. I heard it too.
I went and asked my son to check it. He opened the damper and then closed the stove door again. A little later, I heard scratching noises at the glass door on the stove.
My son opened it and a bird flew out. The crazy woman that I am....pulled a blanket over my head and ran around after it with a broom.
We opened the door, but it kept flying from window to window to get out. Poor thing. Funny part is, is that the house cats were all napping at that point. They missed the "show."
I didn't have to go far to do bird watching, ha ha ha!
