Coast Guard helicopters are used for lots of rescues, but they’re not usually like this.

A Texas man’s expensive pet bird got loose, so he climbed about 60 feet up a pine tree to retrieve it. Then they got stuck.

After the man’s sister called 9-1-1, firefighters discovered they couldn’t back up their truck to the tree because of wet ground. So they called in the Coast Guard chopper. It lowered William Hart and his two-thousand-dollar cockatoo named Geronimo safely to the ground.

Hart says Geronimo is his baby and he’d do it again.
