    Default Baby Bird Rescue

    Earlier this summer, my wife and I had to place a baby Northern Oriole back into its little nest. The nest was a bit over 20 feet in the air and way out on the end of a small branch.

    But there was a problem: how do you hold up a 20 foot extension ladder when there's nothing to lean it against?

    This is how we did it.

    This is the little tike we rescued from our cat. But I must give the cat credit here. He brought the bird to us when we were talking at the back porch.

    YET another use for a tractor [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] hope u had the bottom of the ladder tied off so it could not slide back. i have the same tractor and fel as u, so now i have to go looking for a bird to set back in its nest [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]. did the bird make out ok? somtimes the mamma won't have anything to do with them after u touch them.depends on the bird i guess.

    My wife stood on the bottom rung of the ladder while I went to the top.

    As far as we know, everyting turned out OK.

    Bill, I don't think I'd have climbed that ladder even for one of the grandkids. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Sure looks dangerous to me.

    When I saw the title of this thread, I thought it was a childhood story about YOU, Bird! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I'm glad it wasn't just me that was thinking that! Looks like a giant see saw! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] You couldn't get me up that thing with two pushing and three pulling! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
