Frozen Sparrow Rescued By Man’s Breath Will Melt Your Heart (VIDEO)
Humanity still has its heroes as demonstrated by this man in Idaho who rescued a sparrow stuck on a frozen fence on New Year’s morning.
Nelson Wilson was feeding his horses when he noticed a sparrow perched on a steel fence near their water tank. He explained on his YouTube that the tank is heated to keep it from freezing. Unfortunately, the sparrow may have gotten its feet wet after drinking from it. It landed on the fence and with near zero temperatures in Idaho, got stuck.
Here’s Nelson’s account of how he saved the bird:
First, I attempted to warm the feet of the frightened bird by pressing my palm against both the fence and the birds feet, while also gently restraining the bird’s flapping wings. It then seemed that warming the birds feet with my warm breath would bring quicker success. Gentle sideways motion with my thumb brought freedom for the frightened bird and a smile of satisfaction to my face… a delightful way to start a new year.
Amazing! The sparrow singing thanks to this man after it got free brought tears to my eyes.
