These orphaned baby birds lost their parents, but are now snuggling up to something that feels just as warm, fluffy and safe.
On Sunday, three baby birds were rescued from a tree after it had been cut down - and their parents were nowhere to be found.
Thankfully, the woman whose tree was cut down heard the loud cries of the young, orphaned birds and contacted Australia's Wildcare Inc. NT. The exact species of parrot won't be known until their feathers grow in.
"Their first night was very restless as they were wanting their mum and dad to keep them warm," Terri Wright, a caretaker with Wildlife NT, wrote in a YouTube video description of the birds after the rescue.
That's when their special stuffed companion came into play.
Cuddle Buddies works to do something pretty unique for rescued animals with its plush toys. The stuffed animals are upcycled and retrofitted with "tickers" that mimic a mother animal's heartbeat. As one can imagine, such a toy comes in handy when rehabilitating orphaned wildlife babies in desperate need of a parent's touch - when the real thing isn't available.
