Florida Bird Rescue
Occurred on April 16, 2017 / Trinity, Florida, United States
Info from Licensor: "My sister and I were visiting my niece, nephew, and their family in Trinity, Florida. While I was in their back yard, I noticed an Anhinga that looked like it had food in it's mouth. After looking more closely, I noticed that something was wrapped around it's beak. At first, I thought it was some kind of plastic. I noticed him trying to scrape it off on the side of the drain he was standing on. I didn't know what to do. I figured the bird would try to leave if I went out to help. My nephew, Todd Meadows, returned home from the store shortly after I noticed the bird. Then Todd went to try to help the bird. The video shows us removing cotton from around the bird's beak. My sister, Darlene Dixon, also was helping. After removing the cotton, the bird made it's way over to the pond to get a drink and later, we noticed it sitting on the bank of the pond drying it's wings."
