Ok, bad joke...
On 10/4 my son happened to be in the living room and called out "there's a bird in the fireplace!" ... I came over and heard the chirping and saw some flapping myself. (Get it now? Fireplace...flu ...told you it was a bad joke)
Not much to tell except it was so dark that we could only really see it well in the flash pictures.
When we opened the cover, it just hid behind the fake logs, so my wife Tricia started dismantling (hey, another pun!) the log stack.
She eventually got hold of it so we could release it out in the front yard.
My uneducated guess says it's a thrasher... a confused one.
