Based on the video description, this happened this summer in Mundelein, Illinois. Here's how the parents described this dilemma:

I was on a walk with with my family and we noticed there was a baby bird with its head stuck in the rocks. My kids were so sad, so we decided to help the bird out and noticed the mom was close by coming back and forth. As soon as we set the baby bird free the mother was quick to come to her and start feeding her and the baby bird was so excited as soon as it saw it’s mother. It was a rewarding moment and an amazing life lesson opportunity for me to teach my kids.

Spoiler Alert: this has a happy bird ending.

Kudos to this family for taking a simple wildlife moment and turning it into a teachable moment. What might seem trivial is now a moment that two little boys will likely never ever forget.
