Friday afternoon I get a call from my daughter. "There's something weird. A dead bird is lying in the middle of the living room."
No doors or windows were open. I have 2 cats but they're always indoors. One cat had been with my daughter in her room for most of the afternoon, the other one was hiding under my bed because the cleaning lady had come a couple of hours earlier (he doesn't like the vacuum cleaner). The cleaning lady doesn't leave any doors open because of the cats.
The bird was a little red-breasted finch and he was quite untouched, so the cats hadn't seen him.
He was lying in the middle of the floor with no sign of trauma.
At first I thought he might have come down the fireplace, but I checked and the flue was completely closed.
So how did Mr. Finch end up dead in my living room? All of the doors and windows were closed, he wasn't there when the cleaning lady left, and my daughter was home in her room after that and didn't hear or see anything out of the ordinary.
I need the Foo collective to help solve this mystery.
