Need something to warm your heart after such a frigid weekend?
This video shows one little bird who was really struggling with the cold in Idaho earlier this month, until a friendly human came to the rescue. Nelson Wilson went out to feed his horses on New Year’s day, and found the little finch perched on a fence – – with its feet frozen solid along the rail.
Nelson says: “The water tank is heated to keep it from freezing. It is not uncommon for birds to drink from the heated tank. Apparently, this unfortunate bird had gotten its feet wet and, while making its exit, had become frozen to the fence in the prevailing near zero Idaho temperatures.”
Watch his awesome rescue!
