I am so glad you kept it in until the sun rose.
The house had a wall of windows that ran the entire width of our back porch at BOR. If I was quilting I would open the door to let air in. I had a few birds fly inside. Took a while to get them out. They were swallows.
Their nests were over the front door. They trained their babies how to fly off our back porch. The babies made a sound with their wings like a loud rustle when they dive bombed toward the pasture, until they got it right.
Some of them would sit in my hand. I had to hang ribbons from the ceiling in front of each window to keep them from crashing in to them. We did have a few other swallows do that. I would hold them outside untill they recovered their senses.
There were a few that would come and hang in the air in front of my face. Awesome!!
Nothing like critters visiting when there are cats & dogs there. 8-)
