Do you have any pets? Those cats are good at smuggling birds into the house like that. Oh and ferrets, gotta watch out for them. :(

A cat, never outside or downstairs in family room. No bird poop anywhere either, which is strange when you think about it. We CAN NOT figure it out.

We once found a dead bat in the middle of our basement floor, also very strange. Do you have any sort of chimney in the house, even a walled-up one? Birds can fly down the chimney and get into the house - they can also nest in the chimney if it isn't used much.

It's an old Sicilian message. Luca Brasi clucks with the chickens.

We once had a bird come up the toilet. I'm not a very squeamish person, but I'm pretty sure I screamed like a little girl when I discovered it. (In my defense, I was a 9th or 10th grade girl.). Maybe the bird came up and the cat fished it out?

@gt0163c: There were problems with the drainage in our house! lol :-)

If it's an older house, it might have a pre-existing vent or opening in which the bird could have entered before you guys went geothermal.

I think it's a Bag of Carrots from Woot.

i used to get about a bird every other year. i finally found the hole in the long boarded over chimney that is used to vent the gas hotwater heater.

Sounds like a Scooby-Doo mystery. Go back to the restaurant and talk to the guy who develops huge drops of sweat on his brow.

Or perhaps Sylvester finally got Tweety.

Honestly, I think someone left the basement door open, the bird flew into the house, went down to the basement, tried to fly out the basement windows, hit head and died.

No fireplace, checked the vents~lotsa cobwebs, no holes. Door was not open, only hubby and me here so sure about that. You would think there was poop from scared bird tho.

I've had a bird fly in past me when I was entering/exiting through the front door. Barely noticed one time. If you're in conversation about where you're going or putting on a coat, etc, you could easily miss it going by you.

@gt0163c: When we lived on a ranch outside Dallas our neighbor showed up in the middle of the night screaming. After it was all sorted out it turned out a 6' water moccasin had come up through the toilet WHILE SHE WAS SITTING ON IT and tried to escape. Gave her the scare of her life.
