Martin Tyner from Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah got a call about a golden eagle that couldn't fly. Martin managed to rescue the bird and took it back to his facility to find out what was wrong. Turns out, eagles sometimes eat so much that they can't fly, at least until they've digested their dinner. The same thing happens to us.

Birds In Danger, People Fly Into Action!

Birds In Danger, People Fly Into Action!

When a baby bird falls from the nest, it's a delicate process trying to properly re-nest it again. That's why the people at SMART (or Specialized Mobile Animal Rescue Team) had to come up with a clever new method for re-nesting a redtail hawk. They called it "The Stork" method, and they did it by attaching a net to a long pole. And it worked perfectly! via Animalrescueteamla Next, a baby swan had become trapped in a man-made water vortex. The momma swan couldn't get to her baby, so a kind stranger stepped in to save the day. Not only did he have to be gentle, he had to fight off a frantic mother swan as well. Luckily, he was able to reunite this feathery family. via Viral Hog  View Now
People Swoop In To Rescue Birds

People Swoop In To Rescue Birds

The Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah doesn't just rescue eagles, they take care of all kinds of birds. Case in point, they came across a newborn horned lark that needed 24-hour care and feeding in order to survive. Once it was healthy enough, they released the lark back into the wild.  Some birds get themselves into trouble though. This osprey got itself trapped in the cables on a cell tower. When Tom Corbin and his friend Shane were called in to help, they had to think on their feet since they're not actually bird rescuers. Thankfully, they were successful. View Now
