While I like winter, I sometimes feel bad for all the animals that have to endure the sometimes harsh weather. Many volunteers often bring bales of hay or bird seeds to feed deer and birds to facilitate their search for food. It’s also heartwarming when people go out of their way to rescue animals in distress such as when a Norwegian swimmer dived to rescue a duck drowning as it fell through the ice.
While one little finch was searching for food, he got his feet stuck on a metal fence pole. His tiny feet immediately froze to the pole and he couldn’t fly away. When Nelson Wilson of Caldwell, Idaho, heard the cries, he noticed a bird was in distress. He rescued the finch in such a genius fashion that his rescue is going viral!

Not all heroes have to wear capes and Wilson is one such hero. He took the time to rescue a tiny finch bird that found itself in trouble and it warms my heart.
