Basin Electric employees rescue helpless bird

Kestrel-1Random acts of kindness are beautiful. And in a big world, it’s often the little things that make a difference.

On Jan. 15, a group of cooperative employees became living proof of that when they saved a helpless creature.

James Decker, Basin Electric hardware maintenance technician, Corey Perman, Basin Electric business applications supervisor, and Kyle Pearson, Basin Electric desktop applications analyst III, saved a small bird – a kestrel – from being attacked by two ravens near the employees’ Bismarck, ND, office.


The trio put the kestrel in a box and contacted Dakota Zoo in Bismarck, which sent employees to collect the bird and nurture it back to health. The Basin Electric employees kept in touch with the zoo to get an update on the kestrel’s progress.

The zoo released the kestrel at the North Dakota State Capitol grounds Jan. 23. He took flight right away and seemed to be in perfect health.
