Jeremy, For a bird in the house, the first thing I do is close the shades or cover the windows to prevent the bird from trying to fly through them. Then turn off any artificial lighting. This helps to keep the bird from flying around near the ceiling. If it is dark enough, the bird will not fly. (It may even perch where it can be caught gently) Then open an outside door or window and wait for the bird to see the light. Stay indoors as far from the door as possible. Usually within a few minutes the bird will fly toward the light of the outdoors if it can see it. If you need to use the ipod, play a Junco sound outside, but stay out of the bird's sight. If this doesn't work, you may stand away from the open door, raise your hands and slowly try to herd the bird in the direction of the door. Sandy DanielsEnumclaw PlateauLadyhawk707 at msn.com
