A magpie was rescued by firefighters after he got his head stuck in a supermarket sign.
Recordings from Jenny Hillman showed a rescue team leaning a huge ladder on a Woolworths board in Stanthorpe, southeast Queensland.
The plate was in the shape of a triangle and the bird's head was between the two edges.
A magpie had to be rescued by firefighters after being stuck in a supermarket sign
The plate is six meters above the ground and the magpie remained on the plate for about two meters.
Mrs. Hillman told me Yahoo News Australia she had been in the mall when she heard strange noises.
She went outside and saw the commotion, but initially couldn't see what the fire department had brought there.
& # 39; I could hear a sound and someone I knew walked past and they said there is a bird up there and I can see the head, & # 39; she said.
Dennis Burton of Queensland Fire and Emergency Service said the magpie got stuck due to strong wind.
The crew received a telescopic ladder and could safely slide the bird out of the board.
The magpie was taken to Granite Belt Wildlife Carers to be checked, one of the bird attendants claiming that he might have lost a main feather – but otherwise it would not work.
