Hi Carol

Paul from Harwinton here - 

I know of tree hole nesting ducks doing exactly what you have posted. I once caught (cleaned and released) a Wood duck female in a friends wood stove in West Hartford years ago. Had another years later caught in a heating duct in Bloomfield; it to was a Wood duck.

I would like to ask you if what you had might not have been also a wood duck? What did you see on this dead bird that made you call it a Red-b-merg? It's Possible but very unusual a bird here in CT>
