The Arlington County Fire Department recently swung into action to free a bird that got its head wedged in the siding of a residential building in Virginia’s Ballston area.

Sharing pictures and details of the rescue operation on Twitter, the fire department asked netizens for their help in identifying the bird's species.

“The bird is now safe, but is there any idea of the species? We're thinking Grackle,” the department wrote on Twitter.

Pictures show a firefighter using a ladder to climb on top of the roof to rescue the bird. It was later released back into the wild.

Take a look here:

The bird was later identified by animal control as a Starling. Many who came across the posts lauded the fire-fighters for their timely intervention.
