EASTHAM, Mass. (AP) - An osprey is recovering after it spent three days entangled in fabric fencing and hanging from a 60-foot tree on Cape Cod.

The Cape Cod Times reports (https://bit.ly/2bbUZAx ) Wild Care wildlife rehabilitator Amy Webster and Orleans police officers responded last week to the Orleans marsh where the osprey was spotted dangling in the tree.

Webster says a local tree worker climbed the tree, removed the top of the tree where the bird was trapped and lowered it to the ground.

The nonprofit says a piece of silt fencing was wrapped around the bird’s toes and ankles.

The bird wasn’t seriously injured and is expected to make a full recovery.

Ospreys are large birds of prey that typically nest near bodies of water.
