Time and time again. Birds find flue stacks and chimneys a desirable place to stay warm. What they don't know is that the flue stack is your boiler way to exhaust flue gasses from the combustion process. The by-products from the combustion process will most likely kill birds and can often block flue stack completely. This will end of filling up the home with exhaust, which as we know is harmful. In this case, the bird is blocking the burner inlet tubes which will throw off the fuel to air ratio (potentially) and can often lead to an unacceptable amount of incomplete combustion. Which can be harmful to the occupants.
