Where's Wood n Coal? I think he just had a bird in his stove too! :lol:



Well Congress surely has their heads up in the pipes but I think its their own plumbing. If they had glass belly buttons it may help.

Had it happen a few times back on Long Island with the steel chimney of my pot belly coal stove.

No birds here so far, but I've had to get a few squirrel's nests out of the top of my brick chimney here.

[quote="rberq"]A friend of mine found the remains of a good-sized duck in his cellar wood stove when he went to light it in the fall.

If I ever find a duck in my stove Im throwing all my beer outside! I cant even imagine how it got there unless it died in flight, lol
