According to the fisherman the bird was in very bad conditions it barely could stand and its nib was frozen so Yuriy took young bird to his home and took care of it. “I searched the Internet and found that flamingo eats fish and crayfish I had some fish in my fridge so I cut it into pieces and fed the bird the next day it ate without my help. I switched the voices of birds and flamingoes and the bird reacted. It slept in a big bowl with water standing on one leg and hiding its head under one wing”, says the fisherman.
