Instead of a partridge in a pear tree, Davey crews were called to rescue a pelican 80 feet up in a tree this holiday season.

A brown pelican is on the mend at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida after getting stuck for hours in a tree Thursday morning.

The rescue happened near Seagate Drive in Naples.

The pelican was stuck 80 feet up in a tree upside down for four hours.

Now, it is alive and recovering thanks to some unlikely heroes.

"It's a helpless feeling because he was lying upside down," said rescuer Dan Powell, "It's what we do everyday. It definitely was a twist because you've got an animal up there."
