“If I did not rescue this baby bird, it’d have died,” the netizen wrote. “It got its claw stuck to the plastic nesting material used by its parent. The parent was calling out frantically for several hours. I thought it was encouraging the fledging to fly from the nest. I saw it perched outside the nest.
When I checked one hour later, the fledging was in the same spot on the nest. I suspected it was stuck. I had one bird stuck the same way and died two years ago. That time I didn’t know birds can get stuck this way. So I took the nest in, freed the fledging and placed it amongst some plants. It was still there late evening. Its parent was nearby. The next day it disappeared.”
The online user then shared that the story had a happy ending, saying, “Two days later, I saw the fledging, alive–last photo. I hope you enjoyed my story.”

A handful of online users responded to the post with comments praising and thanking the netizen for her act of kindness. “Thank you for reading the emotion of parents of the baby, desperate parents do seek help from humans but not all people know what happen, and lose the chance to save a helpless creature,” one wrote. “Thank you for sharing your story, which definitely educate us in this aspect, you are blessed.”
