FAIRFAX, Va. - An osprey stuck in a tree was rescued Thursday morning.
Around 10 a.m. Thursday, an osprey was spotted hanging upside from a tree near Laurel Hill Park.
Fairfax County Animal Protection Police and Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department were able to remove the osprey from the tree.
A St. Pete man and a couple of ospreys are now forever linked after one of the birds stole the guy's prized cashmere scarf for its nest.
Upon the first flight, the osprey was having trouble flying. It was taken to a nearby veterinarian's office for treatment.
