Poor guy is in there shaking around and chirping like a mofo. Pics incoming. How the eff do I get him out? I really don't want to have to cut.

Alright more than one bird is trapped in there. Red lines are about where they are trapped. Possibly higher.

You should be able to pull the bottom part of the spout off. Might have a screw in it.
Link Posted: 6/14/2014 1:13:15 PM EDT
Remove the vertical downspout from the wall and tilt it so they slide out the top, the way they got in. Something must be preventing them from sliding all of the way down and out the bottom?

Can you wash them out without drowning them?

Can't believe I made it in before fire

Remove gutter and pour them from the top. Clear the jam. Hopefully they're not babies. Maybe a nest washed own there
Link Posted: 6/14/2014 1:18:23 PM EDT
bang on it with your fist, they will tumble out..

Those pieces are just held together by screws. Take that one down and shake the bird out.
Link Posted: 6/14/2014 1:21:53 PM EDT
Yup you gotta take that down spout off the house.

That's a downspout. It's probably screwed to a flange on the gutter (or an elbow), unscrew it.....remove downspout hangers from siding. (probably screwed too)

They are nailed together not screwed. Even the flanges are nailed. Might just pry them out. Not my house or I would have the thing off already.

Either way the birds are either sleeping in there, or dead, or got out. They are not responding to me pounding on it anymore and not shaking around in there from what I can hear. Will go back out and check soon though.

Pull bottom part off.

Stick hose in top and turn on water.

Bird in hand.

Seems to me you need a ladder and a hose.

Better yet a power washer.

Have your son get his ball glove and stand at the other end of the driveway.

Gutter bird blues

I got a bird in my gutter
So sad it make me cry
I got a bird in my gutter
We are stuck and can't fly

Baby took my wings
She is long long gone
I got a bird in the gutter
Went in a king and left a pawn

drill random holes till the noise stops
Link Posted: 6/14/2014 1:52:24 PM EDT
If they are in a gutter, or attempting to nest therein, they are more than likely English sparrows and should be terminated with extreme prejudice.
Link Posted: 6/14/2014 1:52:50 PM EDT
1) Spray hair spray into the bottom of the down spout..
2) crimp of down spout, all except for one small hole..
3) Light hair spray.
4) Birdie/s will launch "minute man style" out the top
5) video and post to arfcom.
6) Profit..


Now I wait...





Thank me later..

Stick a leaf blower in the down spout.

Let 'er rip and give them a lesson in flight.

Start removing pieces of the house walls and roof nearest the downspout until the downspout comes free.

Birds are pretty fucking dumb.

Ornithoides. Shit.

I once had one fly into my garage and could't figure out how to get the fuck back out. That big fucking whole he (probably a fucking she) flew through was a big mystery I guess.

Son of a cunt finally flew the fuck back out through the big fucking gaping whole in the whole wall that isn't there after 20 minutes but not before shitting on my floor on the way out.

Bastard.

I sense much anger in you.

You need yoga. It will lower your RPM, and being around hot bitches in yoga pants will help you find your center.

Trust me on this.

Namaste, mofos, Namaste.

Birds will fly into my garage when the door is open and it takes a day or two for them to realize that is the way out.

They may have stopped making noise because they are hiding from the predator that makes banging noises on their house.

OP what happened? This thread made me laugh so so much.

Birds are dumb. Nature will correct its mistake in a few days.

Gutter is probably plugged where they are at. Fill lower portion with combustible gas, throw match at gutter spout and watch birds reach low earth orbit.
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 7:16:16 PM EDT
So did OP eat the birds, fire bomb them, or what??

We have about an 8x8 steel tube that runs vertically along side the roll up door of our shop and every year there's a bird or two that get themselves inside of it. I figure sooner or later they will just stop because it'll be plum full of dead birds.
