I got a bird in my kitchen. Its not a robbin but its bigger than a finch. Its flying over my washer and dryer where it has glass on two sides. Lots of light, guess it thinks it can get out that way. I've closed off the upstairs, both bedrooms downstairs and the bathroom. I've left the kitchen door open which is the way it got in. So, do I try and save it or do I smack it with a broom? Maybe just name it and feed it? All sugestions will be considered.

Get a digital cmaera. Get a cat. Post pics. [:)]

My lazy cat just stared at it for a while then walked outside.

Try to toss a bath towel over it and take it outside. Or, like Deliverator said, get a cat. [:D] Edit: Since you already have a cat, I'd suggest a 28 gauge. Less damage to the house that way.

I got my fishing net ready but it could break a wing in that. Do birds bite?

Yeah birds bite, but a small bird like that isn't going to really do any damage to you. I've been bitten by several birds (medium to large size parrots). I wouldn't worry about it too much. The towel will contain the bird long enough for you to get it outside.

Do birds bite? Heh, I take it you've never had one as a pet. They bite. . .REALLY hard. I think the best way to get it out of your house is to get a towel or pillow case. This way you wont get bit. I've done this to pick up my parents small parrot when it gets spooked. You wont hurt it as long as you're careful. In fact, it may hurt itself by attacking the window. - Matt

Wildlife is extremely dangerous. That's why it is called Wild. Even contemplating allowing something like that to dwell in your home is dangerous to the fabric of society. My feeling is that it is time for you to purchase a silencer and a gun to go with it (if you don't already have one). .45 ACP makes a fantastic silenced round (due to its mass and low velocity) which allows you to deliver a powerful punch even with subsonic ammo.

Alright. Used my fishing net. He grabbed it without flopping around in it. Walked it outside and now hes a free bird. Thanks all.

.45 ACP vs. sparrow? I'm thinking you'll get a little overpenetration. I wouldn't use anything over .380 on small birds. [;)]
