There was another bird inside my screened in back porch again this morning. This happens quite regularly anymore. They just can’t fly in there, so what is so interesting that makes them find a way in? There are two screen doors. The one that opens to the dogs’ yard has been altered. I attached a 1”x4” across the bottom of both doors but the one to the dogs’ yard, I loosened the screen at the bottom. It works like a doggie door. They just jump through the door to get off and on the porch. Somehow, these birds have figured a way to get in through that loose screen.
After the dogs all came back in, I removed the long springs that close the doors and keeps them shut (with the help of the spring loaded rockers installed on the side of the door jams). I then opened both doors as wide as they could go and chased the bird around until it found its way out one of the doors.
There is nothing that I know of for them to eat on the porch. Maybe they just want to turn on the ceiling fans out there and sit on my old rocking chair and relax. If it had only happened one or two times, I wouldn’t be a wondering about it. But, it happens quite often. Dang “bird brained” birds. . .
