A pigeon fell in my chimney and it can't get out! What should I do?

I'm not going to turn the fire place on IT WILL BURN, and we can't call an exterminator, it's too much money

true story. it happened to a friend. he made a platform by drilling holes in the four corners of a small piece of plywood. attaching strong thin rope line into those holes, he lowered it down the chimney down towards the bird. using a flashlight, he waited patiently. then he felt some weight on this device of his and slowly lifted the bird out.
lol.......a true story.wish he could have filmed it.

Call a chimney sweep! You have to do something or it's going to die and your house is going to smell bad! Also, it's clogging your chimney!

You HAVE to get it out .. or you will never be able to use the chimney again. The bird will most definitely die in there if you can't save it..then you will have a blockage.
