I don't have a clue as to how it got in, but I almost stepped on it.
I think it likes my wife. All summer long, it is outside the bedroom window at the crack of dawn waking her up with it's chirping, while I am out in the other room on the computer.
We toyed with the idea of opening a door in the hopes that it would fly out, but the temperature outside is 28 degrees, the wind is at 25, gusting to 40, and it is snowing like crazy. We figured we would get frozen out.
I finally told it if it promises not to poop on anything it can stay the night.
What would you do ?

in the house, and while my mother and sister ran around tearing at their hair and screaming, I chased it down with a landing net and shooed it out the door.

I doubt if Mrs. Kudzu could handle it.

Take a coffee can, small box, whatever. Cut a hole about an inch and a half diameter. Put it on a high shelf.
Let it stay|

But you will need to potty train it. It might be happy in a cage for the winter.

in our house for about two weeks! We thought it was pretty cool, but we did have to clean up after it. Bonnie kept trying to get it to go in a cage but it never did. We couldn't catch it either.
Nanci finally got it out last evening|

Got it from one room to another by closing and opening doors. Then when it was in the mud room she opened the sliding glass doors to the outside and closed the sliders to the inside, and it flew out.
Good thing your neighborhood|

I am still removing ladybug carcasses from my screens though.

Bring them in occasionally. If I get to them in time, they get to fly away.. if not, well cats will do what cats do.

If the bird winds up in the house it's probably a House Wren.

for the past couple of years, don't know if it's the same ones or different, but they use the same nest. Of course they had little ones. It was pretty funny when they fledged, seeing a few small birds flying around and crashing into things.

Worst we've had was a raccoon. He was very industrious though. What a mess.
