Two Suffolk Marine Bureau officers rescued a bird they found tangled in string on a platform used to offload fuel for the Northport Power Station in the Long Island Sound Sunday morning, police said.

Marine Bureau officers Charles Marchiselli and Michael O'Leary were aboard Marine Bravo when they observed a bird tangled in string along the railing of the National Grid Northport platform, located about 2 miles north of the Northport Power Station, at about 11:15 a.m.  Officer O'Leary distracted the bird with a wildlife pole while Officer Marchiselli covered the bird with a blanket and cut the entangling lines.

The bird did not appear injured and swam away after being freed.

The officers were conducting a Homeland Security check of the platform when they saw the bird.
