Firefighters give owl a lift to its nest

EVERGREEN - Firefighters with Evergreen Fire Rescue helped an owlet after it either fell or jumped from its nest.

The bird was too young to get back up to the nest so firefighters got creative. They used their ladder truck to reach the nest.

It was quite a daring operation, with a firefighter leaning out of the bucket truck to carefully place the owlet in the nest. Once he or she was safe, the crowd below cheered.

Owls typically don't learn to fly until they're several weeks old.
