Black-billed Magpie Rescue

Setting out on the 1st day of the month to find something interesting, I went looking for Bobolinks. There is really only one location nearby for that species. As I got to the road that they are found on, I pulled off the road to start my list. There next to where I parked is a double gate with posted signs on it and a cable lock. Something I have seen before, but this time there is a Black-billed Magpie hanging from the lock or gate, I can't quite tell. I thought it was dead so I finished getting my bird list ready. As I did that the wing moved, so I got some gloves I keep in the truck and went to check it out. As I got closer, it got squirmy but couldn't go anywhere. I gently slid it up the gap in the gate. When I got it to the top, it griped at me for taking so long to get there and flew off into the deep grass. Likely to hide in shame for being dumb enough to get his head stuck. Sadly no pictures, but another species in the hand.

So cool that you were able to rescue it! Hope the poor thing wasn't there for long.
