HOWARD (WLUK) -- Free bird!

A Howard couple woke up to an unusual situation Friday. A bird had become stuck to one of their yard decorations.

Gwen Kohls shared the video with us. She says the bird's tail feathers were frozen to a shepherd's hook. She says other birds were gathering to eat, but the stuck bird could only look at them and open its mouth.

Gwen's husband, David, got the bird free using warm water.

According to the National Weather Service, the temperature in the area around 8 a.m. was -2 degrees.
