While out with her family, Cindy Hayes spotted something bobbing in the lake and when she got closer she realized it was a drowning osprey. Taking an oar, she extended it out as a life-raft for the water-sogged bird, who gratefully perches onto it. Cindy makes sure to face away so as to not frighten the bird back into the water. Once they reached shore, the osprey appears to have fully recovered from its adventure and flies away.
Watch Cindy’s bird rescue below and share it with your family and friends!
