what's he doing

usually you can see the birds sit around these chimneys when its cold.  This chimney doesn't have the mesh cones on it to keep the birds out.  The bird looking down is watching one of his buddies who just went inside.  Don't know how long it stayed inside but it can't be good for the owners.

  1. Hi Bill.

    Indeed, your chimney can become blocked with birds in the neighborhood.

  2. I read somewhere that the smoke from fires gets rid of some of the parasites from a bird's feathers. Jackdaws seem to be especially keen to smoke out their tics and fleas.

  5. Don't hope he makes a nest inside. The house from my parents in amsterdam had once 4 nests in some chimney's.

  7. We have had birds in our chimney in the past. This house has the mesh in place to prevent that. We have even had them swoop into the exhaust pipe from the gas furnace. Love the birds but they can cause problems. Diana

  8. We don't have any birds that hang around chimneys. I have never seen a bird land on a chimney here.

  13. We have had that happen and it wasn't fun to get the birds out of the place!

  14. I used to live in a house with no chimney caps and, for sure, it wasn't long before birds took up residence. Noisy buggers!

  16. I can remember hearing birds in the chimney. And they would crash into our Li








    I remember hearing birds in our chimney. I guess they are looking to get warm.
