Q: How do you catch the bird?

Well, the help file mentions that the bird is afraid of the rod, so keep that in mind. If you have the rod in your possession, you won't be able to get near the bird. Also, you'll need a cage to keep the bird in. So if you've got the cage, and not the rod, you're all set.
