Two of these UFBs (unidentified flying birds) were safely removed from the living quarters of a house in Tennessee in June 2012. The birds were probably 5-6 inches from beak to tail (maybe a bit longer with the wings folded back), and predominantly black with accents of pale, muted gray. Sorry the pictures aren't very good, but any advice would be wonderful!

Looks like Chimney Swift -- they'll roost in chimneys, and sometimes they can get into the air ducts that way -- we had one in our house years ago.
