A group of friends were ice fishing in Pennsylvania and got a shocking surprise.
The flag pole signaled that something was on the end of the fishing line. One of the men went running for the catch, he pulled the line out of the ice and to his surprise it wasn’t a fish.
It was a bird, a live bird. The bird is a Red-breasted Merganser which is a large diving duck. They stay under water when looking for food.
The fisherman untangled the bird from the line and set it free.
