CHICAGO – Chicago firefighters attracted quite a crowd in the Loop Sunday afternoon when they rescued a pet bird.  

“There he goes,” one person could be heard saying.

The bird was stuck on a window ledge on the second floor of the Railway Exchange Building, located in the 200 block of S. Michigan Avenue. Fire crews assisted with his rescue. “The citizen asked for a ladder and a crew member instead used a pole to assist getting the bird down,” Chicago fire shared on Twitter.

Some spectators said it looked like a macaw and its wings appeared to have been clipped. 

According to the Chicago Tribune, the bird’s owner took it downtown with them while they attended a rally. 

“America’s heroes,” one person said. “They do it again.”
