That is horrible! I'm with you - I can't stand the site of anything dead. I had a beta fish that died and I made my friend "take care of it" because I couldn't stand the thought of it! It gave me the heebie-jeebies (lol)

i don't think it really matters if it was a neighbor or not, meaning if it was some kid or teenager that randomly picked your house, that's still morbid. not to mention if whoever put it there killed the poor bird, animal abuse. i would definitely file a complaint with the police, just so it's on the record.

I gotta say, dont file with the police. They will not investigate this. They have no evidence to go off of, no proof of anyone who did it, no independent witnesses, and no proof that the bird didnt just fly in there itself. It would be a waste of your time and theirs. The charge would be disorderly conduct at best. If you wanted to press the issue, you could call the postal inspector in your area, but they probably wont be much help either. I have just accepted the fact that some people are jerks and just try to get a rise out of someone. Keep an eye out for suspicious people or kids in your area, and if you see something out of the ordinary, then call the police.

Is there anyway you can weight the lid a bit or cover the drop slot so another bird can't get stuck? I am think along the lines so they can't lift it and are discouraged from trying to get it to make a nest. That way if it does happen again you know it's someone doing it and report it.

I wanted to thank all of you for your comments, I realize I probably freaked out a little too much. It's just not every day you come home and see feathers sticking out of your mail box...can be a little disconcerting.

 

After taking a breath and thinking about it, it is likely the bird somehow got in on it's own and had the lid shut on it. I'm not completely convinced of that, but it's better than the alternative. We aren't going to report it, but we're also going to be more diligent with keeping an eye on things around the property, just in case this wasn't some random act.

 

The bird itself has been removed and sent off to bird heaven, or wherever it is that birds go. We're tempted to remove the mailbox too, it's a bit of an eyesore. Since we're renting we can't really replace it, but taking it down until we decide to move would keep any more birds (or other wildlife) from ending up inside.

 

Thanks again, I really did just need to get it out to some objective outsiders, I really appreciate all the words of advice! smile03.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
