In Louisville, Kentucky, one woman who just got off from her busy day at work noticed something lying helplessly on the ground. It wasn’t a cat or a dog that needed her help – it was a young chick, a bird!
The young chick seemed to be unable to fly – which led the woman to presume that it had most likely fallen out of its nest. The bird was not a common one, as it was a falcon!
She phoned Raptor Rehab, which is a well-known local rescue organization specializing in predatory birds. The staff applauded the woman’s quick wit and haste to call for help – as the young falcon would not have survived on its own.
The young falcon soon got a much-needed medical examination, some food and water and of course, a cosy blanket to nest in!
The young falcon was frightened of the woman at first, but soon warmed up to her after realizing that she merely wanted to help him.
