It’s hard to imagine a time before cell phones. Our phones and our apps are capable of doing almost anything. Even saving lives across species. They are truly powerful devices.
British tree surgeon Leon Timms discovered a tiny chaffinch lying on the ground. It is thought that the bird flew into the solar panels on Timms’ roof or hit one of his windows. The bird was dazed and had trouble breathing. So Leon brought it into his home and started to stroke the bird, hoping to revive it. Luckily he had his smartphone with him.
“I brought the chaffinch inside and started stroking him on my lap, and then I came up with the idea of playing it the sound of another chaffinch on my mobile phone app. I popped the app on and almost immediately the bird’s eyes opened and he seemed to become more alert … It definitely responded to the sound of another chaffinch.”
It could be coincidence, but that seems unlikely. At least one bird owes it’s life to this app now.
