Default Saving A Blackbird

Today I saved a young blackbird, fr, a big hatchling, was getting stuck in my parents' kitchen(windows is weird contruction for birds). Basically it had flewn through aopen door the living room to the kitchen. I tried to open a window, but I realised soon that I can't get a scared bird through it.
So I had to capture it, walk through the kitchen and living room, with a panicking bird trying to fly(not a good idea in the living room) and it scream when it sees my dad. Out of the door and let it go. So a happy ending for everybody
However blackbirds are calm and trustful birds, so except from a few feathers, and microcopic scratches on my hands.
No, I don't have pictures of it, It was pretty stressful for the poor bird to be graped by a human alone, even I think it had absolute fine with being in the kitchen, but obiviousily we can't have a wild bird indoor.

If it's a young one & not injured then the best thing is to put it somewhere safe outside where the parents will come & find it. That usually works fine.

I'm so glad that the little blackbird is safe and sound outside. Hopefully, it will be reunited with its parents and live a long and happy life. Great job saving it!

Whew! Glad the blackbird is okay!

I had a similar experience with a coal tit a week ago--it flew into the kitchen via the back door and screeched it's head off. I could hear its mate answering outside. There was no way I would be able to catch such a tiny, fast bird so I had to guide it towards the backdoor and out. Other than terrified, it was fine.

Good to hear all went well with the Blackbird.
We have Blackbirds nesting in the Clematis on our fence next to our Patio Doors, she has a nest full of eggs..! On top of that we have Blue Tits in a nest box at the bottom of the garden too.

It didn't seem hurt, it flew away faster than canonball out of a cannon.

I'm glad that the little blackbird flew away just fine. I do love happy endings. May it have a splendid, long life. You did such a great job and must feel very proud and happy.
