Look what I found in the window well!
Moments later fluffy the sullen neighbourhood cat was in there with him. I scared the cat off and put a large tree branch in for the bird to climb out. He didn't. He just sat on it. So I waited a while and then lifted him out on the branch. Then he started running at me and flapping his wings. So I went inside like the coward I am and he came up the steps with me and I had to close the door in his face like he was one of those doorbell ringing god botherers.
