What to do about pigeons in the chimney
If there is a nesting bird in your chimney, you must know how to get rid of it without breaking the law. Removing it there or disturbing any nesting bird will be unlawful. However, in terms of the adult birds trapped in the chimney, this is very typical and a possible issue against the wildlife animals infesting the suburbs. The hardest in this case involves the little hands on rescuing the creature and that always involves a do it yourself kind of rescuing, however, you can also ask help from a professional who is well versed in dealing with the birds and other wildlife animals. They might not be able to send someone out if you will call the wildlife bureau, since they have lots of work to do and their time is not 24/7 at work. There is just a little point that if someone comes up, he will not be able to do his job fine. You can call a private animal removal company for help anyway.
If an adult bird has been trapped in the chimney, this is a typical scenario and it is also a very annoying situation for wildlife rescuers. The hard thing about it is that it involves the little hands of the birds that will be troublesome to deal with. Just keep in mind that the rescuers have a limited resource, since they work for the government and most of the private companies ask for a very expensive rate. They might not be able to send someone right away. There is just a little problem when it comes to sending someone to assist you, because they must also send someone that is not just skillful in moving the pigeon, but someone who is also knowledgeable in handling fire emergency related incidents since it involves the chimney.
You can try while waiting for the rescuers to come from opening the bottom part of the chimney and try to lead the bird out. Place the torch at the base of the chimney, hoping that the bird will come up on its own going to the part of the window with lights. You can do this for a few hours while waiting and keep the room quiet, so that the bird will not be distracted and scared to move out. If nothing seems to happen after a while, you can look up the chimney through the torch and get the idea of where the bird is in the chimney. Most of the chimneys nowadays have a ledge, it will be a short method for the birds to settle. They can be reached and removed from there easily. If the pigeon is further up and cannot be reached by anything, the wildlife specialists can only be the one to extend help to the suffering bird.
