Reese Witherspoon attempted to help a gorgeous cardinal who was unable to fly from her driveway on Thursday.

‘He can’t fly,’ Reese later wrote in the video, along with a teary-eyed emoji.
Determined to help the bird get back into the sky, Reese placed a box on the floor for him and even gave the cardinal a small bowl of bird seed.
Interestingly, the bird did hop inside the box, though Reese made it clear it was without any of her help.
‘I put down a box and he hopped in,’ she wrote, adding, ‘I did NOT touch him.’

Despite her best efforts, the bird was not interested in trying out the bird seed.
Fans offered Reese a flurry of suggestions for how to help, with many recommending she take the bird to a vet or wild life center.
However, it was the suggestion that the bird may have been a message from beyond that really caught Reese’s attention.
