A sparrow named Happy has begun to make waves on social media after a former Quebec resident, Maria Bertrand, rescued the little one in May 2020 while living in California during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At that time most animal rehabilitation clinics were closed due to the pandemic, so she took the sparrow home and tried to nurse him back to health. When Happy was finally examined, Bertrand was told he couldn’t be released to the wild due to his damaged beak which curves upwards, making him look like he’s smiling and giving him his name.
As Global’s Olivia O’Malley reports, the baby bird found on a sidewalk not only gave Bertrand a sense of purpose as she nursed it back to health, but has brought joy to thousands on social media.
