Watch These Guys Try to Free a Broad-Winged Hawk Trapped in a Building

Some days you’re the majestic hawk, and some days you’re the hawk that took a wrong turn. 

When this broad-winged hawk ended up stuck in a building behind a Michigan general store, these guys got a close-up look at this beautiful bird in their attempts to free it.

Pretty much everyone has dealt with a scenario like this at least once where a bird becomes trapped inside somewhere it shouldn’t. Although, I think most of these situations don’t involve quite as large a bird with such sharp or dangerous talons!

I’ve heard larger birds of prey are actually quite intelligent, and it actually seems like this hawk does seem to understand these guys are trying to help him. It doesn’t freak out quite as much as I’ve seen some smaller birds do. The video’s description actually describes this as just another day at this general store. If this an average day, I’d be interested to see what an unusual day is!

In any case, it’s good to see this story complete with a happy ending and no injuries to the hawk or its rescuers!
