I've never had an experience with birds, but I grew up in a fairly old house, and there were always bats in the attic and walls. Every once in a while one would find its way in, and my Dad would somehow catch them in a fishing net and take them outside. I think he usually waited until they fell asleep so he could scoop them up. They would usually be a little freaked out afterwards, so he would put them in our garden and watch for cats until they calmed down and flew away. I always thought they were so cute!
