This tiny bird fell to the ground in someone’s home as a result of the scorching heat. The people who witnessed him crash to the ground rescued him from the hot pavement and revived him with water. Here are some photos of the event.
Here's what happened... lately it's been hot down here in Palm Springs.... really hot. Today it got up to 125 degrees Fahrenheit, so hot that birds were actually dropping out of the sky. We were all sitting in the pool when this guy fell right in front of us. He was standing on the pavement which was scorching hot with his beak open, so I ran inside and got water and poured it into his mouth. Then we scooped him up on this plate, filled it with cool water, and put him in the shade.
