Funny you should ask, because I have the answer.
My gutters and my chimney.
We have 6 inch gutters and they seem to think if they just slink down in them a bit it will be a dandy home.
WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.
They end up getting caught and sliding down and then we hear birds fighting for their lives in the gutter.
And sometimes we don't hear them and they lose the fight. Case in point: Last spring I heard a bird in the gutter. I got William to help me take off the bottom curvy piece so said bird could get out.
5 birds came out. 3 deader than a doornail. 1 with a broken neck. (died a few hours later) 1 flew away.
This happens all the time.
Now to the chimney. Of course the only way out of the chimney is to open the flue and somehow get the bird out of Adrian's office. Here is how it went on Saturday:see him on the picture frame on the wall?
