A baby sparrow being rescued by the maintenance manager where I work. He flew inside the building and right up to the tall windows inside. With a ladder and a gentle grip Frank was able to capture and release this little guy safely back outside..

    Glad someone helped the poor little guy. We have birds slamming into our windows constantly.

    This is a perfect example of a "random act of kindness." I love birds and all animals, so this is an especially touching photo for me. Very well done!!!
