A bird, believed to be a raven or crow, was stuck on wires attached to a pole behind a Shirley home for more than 30 hours before it was rescued.
Residents watched the bird, sometimes flailing in failed attempts to free itself.
A neighbor said she first spotted the bird around 8:15 a.m. Tuesday. It was rescued just after 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
Frankie Floridia, of Strong Island Animal Rescue League, estimated the bird’s wingspan to be 30-32 inches.
A PSEG Long Island crew rescued the bird, which is now being cared for at a rescue in Hampton Bays. Before the rescue, crews had to clear brush in order for a bucket truck to get through.
