Some days can be so busy with collisions that birds will land almost on top of each other, like these two found in Toronto by FLAP Volunteer Isabel during #GlobalBirdRescue. Thankfully, both of these birds were alive and sent to @TWC_Wildlife for treatment. https://t.co/kwMlEXATh6

Spider webbing and human hair can seriously impair birds that become entangled like this American Woodcock rescued on Friday. The hair was tangled around both feet reducing the birds mobility. Don't worry! The hair was removed and the bird was sent to @TWC_Wildlife for rehab. https://t.co/Bwf7us017W
