Man Offers Shirt Off His Back To Bring Tiny Bird Back To Life

This tiny bird might just be the sweetest little rescue we've ever seen.

Ron Holan was driving through the mountains of Norway when he saw a little bird pass by his windshield. Assuming he had hit the bird, he continued driving. Nearly four miles later he stopped to take a picture of the scenery but when he returned to his car he heard something funny: a scratching sound coming from his roof.

Holan jumped out of the car and found something shocking: The tiny bird had become wedged between his roof and his cargo box. For the past several miles the poor bird had been trapped in the small gap, with the near-freezing wind rushing about him.

Holan quickly pulled him out, but the poor little guy was disoriented and chilled to the bone, his little feathers shaking. Fearing he was injured, Holan took him into his car to warm him up - leading to a magical little recovery.

First, he gently inched him out from under the cargo box.

But the little guy was in rough shape.

So Halon brought him into the warm car, gently wrapping him up in his own sweatshirt ...

... and tried to recover.

Eventually he managed to sit up on his own.

Thanks to Holan's gentle care.

And when the bird was ready to go home, he made it very clear ...

... and soared back into the mountains where he belongs.

Not everyone would take the time to stop their journey for a bird, but thanks to Holan this sweet little creature has a second shot at life. And as Holan notes in the video description, it was a great way to spend a birthday.
