Animal Adventures

We had a call from a resort property owner that a wood duck had come down their chimney and wrecked the place. When we got there the poor thing had tried every way to escape thus making a huge mess. We could follow the duck's path by the poop. Everywhere, poop, on everything. Did you know duck poop will stain grout? I know now. If these people had shut their chimney flue and had a chimney cap, this poor duck, and housekeeper, would have been spared a lot of grief. This can apply to the normal house setting. Little birds can get caught in your chimney. Get them capped.
