    Oh help we have a bird in our House. It keeps flying around the Hall & has pooed everywhere. I've opened the windows & doors but it's not flying out

    How do i get it out ? It's pooed on the new Carpet & Lampshades !

    Mum & Dad are away so i can't ask them for help ! Also birds in the house are scary, keeps banging into things :(:(

    I need ideas on getting it out !!

    In the past we had a Bat fall down our Chimney & fly around the landing. Also had a Pigeon !! somehow get into the House. We had to cover all the furniture with old Sheets

    Close the curtains in the rooms and the doors to the main rooms. Open the back door and front door and leave it for an hour, it may find its way out again. If you have a hall or landing windown open that wide too. Good Luck.

    If it is in a room open windows and close doors, if it is still in the hall, then close all doors to rooms and leave front door open and any window in the hallway itself.

    open whatever DOOR (if in the hall) or WINDOW (if in a room) is the brightest -
    turn on the porch light, whatever, to make the outside BRIGHT -
    turn off the indoor lights, and get out of the way -
    the poor thing is a lot more terrified than U are, and letting it alone to find the escape hatch is best.

    hopefully the poor creature will calm down, get oriented, and zip out...

    blimey poor bird it must be terrified, if youre too scared to corner it and pick it up then LeasheForLife has given great advice.

    try diming the lights, bird will fly lower and you may be able to catch it in a towel or net then release it straight outside. Good luck!!
    (this is how I used to catch my budgie before I tamed him)
