Let's just say it wasn't pretty. That's why every house after that has a screen on the chimney.

We had a bird get in through the chimney once. I kept hearing it cheeping bur couldn't find it. It's coloring blended in so well with the dark brown bricks and black screen on the fireplace. We ended up sliding a sheet between the screen and the bird and wrapped the whole thing up and carried it outside. Haven't had any problem with birds building nests in the chimney but they do like our front porch! Several springs we've gotten dive bombed by mamas trying to protect their babies!
