A woman has shared the incredible moment she was able to save a kookaburra who got his head stuck in a farm gate.

Ms Begley had been horse riding for about an hour at a property in Coramba when she noticed the native bird stuck in the metal gate.

‘Spotted this unlucky dude while riding,’ Ms Begley wrote on Facebook.

‘Don’t know how long he was stuck there, thought he was dead when I saw him! So happy he wasn’t!’ 

The video shows Mr Begley approach the bird in a bid to free him from the gate.

‘Are you alive? Please don’t bite me,’ she says in the video. 

She then begins to slide the kookaburra up through the gate.

When the bird reaches the top he is able to extend his wings and fly to freedom.

Ms Begley told Daily Mail Australia she arrived at a good time and was lucky to save him. 

‘I’ve always had a love for animals, and as a kid I used to find injured wildlife,’ she said.

‘I wasn’t terribly worried about him biting me, I was the least of his worries.’

Ms Begley said she didn’t see the bird after it was released but assumes he flew away to get some food. 

‘He felt pretty light and would likely have been pretty hungry,’ she said. 

Ms Begley was praised on social media for her caring actions.

‘One lucky kookaburra,’ wrote one person.

‘Well done Liv – you legend,’ commented another.
