Question Bird inbetween floors? Now what

It sounds like I have a bird in between the 1st and 2nd floor of my house. I hear it in the early morning and late evening. I don't have access to this area, and can't figure out how it got in.

Any suggestions on how to get it out? I can't seem to locate exact area other than somewhere above or near master bathroom. Really starting to p&*(&&*( me off

Take cover plate and then an outlet out of the wall,, the shove a cat through an outlet hole....

might not get the bird.. but it would mean one less cat in the world. Winning.

This reminds me of an Always Sunny episode. Sounds like you need to get a cat into the wall somewhere.

Joking aside, my parents had a similar situation at a previous house. Only became aware of it after the dead animal smell showed up. Good luck in finding a resolution.

EDIT: Of course, Systemnt beat me to the punch lol

It probably got in through your dryer vent opening ( if the vent is run between the floors)
Take the cover off outside and hopefully it will fly out at some point. If this ends up being the case have the vent cleaned....

I am guessing it is not a bird, probably a rodent of some kind.
