In a clear case of fowl play, a trapped bird led two big-hearted NYPD officers on a wild goose chase near Central Park on Thursday night.

The agitated avian was caught on camera honking for help while trapped on the Upper West Side, officials confirmed Friday.

Two cops got the distress call and flew into action.

The goose had waddled into a cramped fenced area near a W. 92nd St. building across the street from Central Park sometime Thursday night and couldn’t get out, officials said.

Residents called 911 after hearing the bird bawling for help.

Video of the rescued posted on Twitter shows a gloved cop reaching into the fenced area to jostle the bird free as it flaps its wings furiously.

“You’re all right ... you’re OK,” the cop tells the bird. “Yeah ... you’re a good boy.”

The goose was taken across the street and released into Central Park, NYPD Chief of Special Operations Harry Wedin tweeted.

“No harm, no fowl,” Wedin added.
