A Hitchcock moment

So I'm just fiddling on the computer this morning (OK, I was playing Balder's Gate II) when I keep hearing these rustling noises from the furnace nook behind me. I know there a mouse around so I just assume that what it is. When it persists I try to whip open the door and catch it in the act but there's never anything there when I try it. I just resolve to buy a mousetrap.

So the noises get more and more frantic and I can't believe a mouse could be making this much of a racket. I try the door again and this bird flies out right at me! It must squeezed into the house under the eves or something and found its way into the furnace room.

I have to prop my door open and spend five minutes letting all the heat escape while I chase the stupid thing out.
