Video recorded April 9th, 2016.
As the video begins, other members of a small flock gather near a bird in distress which has already been struggling to free itself for some time. Although unable to assist, they do not abandon their friend and family member even though many have already learned that the hazardous loose folds and layers of netting are a danger to themselves as well. The trapped bird, exhausted by its struggles, rests for a time before trying again to escape.
At 1 minute, 36 seconds in the video timeline, the bones of a dead bird can be seen dangling from the netting.
A bar of anti-bird spikes can also be seen laying loose atop the netting next to a wall on the right.
After recording had stopped, the bird did work free of the netting and survived. As of the date of this posting July 14th, 2016, loose layers and folds of netting are still endangering every bird that visits the roof of this building, particularly the members of the small flock nesting within the walls of this courtyard.
