WATCH: Man Finds Sweet and Squeaky Surprise at Power Station

Posted on

DANGER! Not only is this area high voltage, it also contains an overwhelming amount of adorableness.

Michael Finnigan was doing maintenance work at a power station in East Syracuse, New York, when he noticed some strange animal behavior. During the facility’s high-voltage training, Finnigan spotted a bird routinely diving in and out of the area. Curious as to what was causing the animal’s return trips, he went to investigate.

What Finnigan found was a pleasant and talkative surprise. Tucked up against one of the power station’s many poles was a bird’s nest occupied by four chicks. No wonder mama bird was so busy: She had a quartet of hungry beaks to feed.

Finnigan stepped away before mom returned, leaving us to wonder why she thought it was a good idea to set up her nursery next to 115,000 volts of electricity.
