Heads Up! You never know what you’ll find on a chimney.

I found myself eye to eye with this little guy!

 

A customer called me today and said the cap I had installed last year must not be doing its job. “Something has died in my chimney”.

When I stopped by to check on her, everything looked ok from the ground, the cap was still up there. But boy when you came into the house it sure smelt like a dead animal to me and the closer you got to the fireplace the worst it got.

There was nothing in the fireplace, up the flue or behind the damper. This was crazy. Where was that smell coming from?

I put my ladder up and when I climbed to the top of the chimney, this little guy was staring at me, well what was left of him that is.

 

 

Hawks and owls typically prey upon ground dwelling mammals such as mice, vole, rats, squirrels and rabbits.

Apparently this Hawk dined and dashed.
