I drove up in my driveway today and noticed a small line of birds walking on the ground. Then one after the other, they fell down into my neighbor’s window well.
So I went over and saw 3 of them down in the well under the grate. They looked like little ducks with beaks and fur and webbed feet. I got my tools, removed the grate, and then tried to get them out with a shovel. No go. I went and got a bucket and tied a string on it. Then I waited as they jumped up trying to get out and scooped them up. One by one I got them all out and let them go in the yard. They ran into the bushes. I am not sure if there was a better spot or where the mama was. I figured I would get them out as fast as I could so they wouldn’t run off without all 3 of them together. Going to check back later to see if they are around.
