 sparrow on ice

This sparrow got stuck on the ice.  I watched him for over an hour then walked out to the tree and he flapped his wings but didn't move. I went back into the garage and got the broom stick as he was high in the tree. I gently tapped the bottom of the ice branch and pieces of ice broke away  and away he flew. I hope he was ok. 


  1. Very pretty images and of course how thoughtful of you to provide assistance to sparrow.
