"The volunteer blackbird was demanding food on its own from the keepers at Mysikrólik until a week ago. Now, to their great surprise, it has started feeding the younger birds. We have never observed such a case before," the keepers wrote on social media.

 

“The little helper has a damaged wing, so he will most likely stay at the Mysikrólik. We plan to employ him full-time," joked the naturalists in their post.

 

The Mysikrólik centre is one of the few in Poland that helps sick or injured wild animals. Its founders are Bielsko-Biała residents Agnieszka and Sławomir Łyczek.
