I was walking home from work today and this little guy scared me to death. I guess I don't do well with sudden, loud, rustling noises in the bushes. I was a little surprised that he wasn't flying away until I realized he was stuck in a mess of hair, cord, and what looked like that nasty pillow stuffing.
Since he was just across the street from where I live I ran home, grabbed some scissors and a pair of gloves, and cut him loose. Ended up having to cut the branch off the bush so I could get to the cord around his neck, but hey, at least he's free again. I wish I would have tried to get a picture with his eyes open. Oh well. Little guy flew off as soon as he was free.
