FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. Editor’s note: This video is from April 2022 on how to protect wildlife and ‘wildlife neighbors’.
Fairfax County Fire and Rescue recently flew into action to treat a small bird that was suffering a medical emergency.
According to a tweet on Friday morning, Station 24 in Woodlawn found a patient suffering from ‘flies in’. Then the station took action, with disabled time and treated the patient with wings.
The little green bird was given some fluids to nurse him back to health.
“Our feathered friend took off,” the firemen said. “A successful treatment and release.”
Lt. David Bender says a refusal form was procured before the bird left for its next destination.
