Man Has Close Encounter With Bird When It Mistakes His Beard For A Nest

By - 13th July 2018

There’s nothing like the sounds of summer, birds chirping, bees flying around the flowers and kids playing in the park. The summer weather puts us all in a brighter, more positive mood. But have you ever witnessed a beard nest in summer?

Yes, a beard nest. I’ve honestly never seen anything quite like this before! One man was minding his own business in the park one day before a surprise kicked in.

Little did he know, he would be befriending a small bird

This man spotted a rather odd looking bird perch on his chest. Moments later it climbed straight onto his thick and curly beard. The bird looks like a scissor-tailed flycatcher which is common in North America.

The bird seemed very comfortable bonding with the man and didn’t seem alarmed as it climbed over his body.

The bird then formed a little beard nest and got comfy

Once the bird landed, it didn’t want to move. The bird seemed thrilled to have found a cosy new (temporary) home in this man’s fine facial hair.

The gentle giant didn’t want to shoo away the bird, instead, he let it do his thing. And he did his thing too, he whipped out his phone and began recording the encounter to show his friends.

Unfortunately, the bird wouldn’t have been able to claim the beard as its home, but the interaction was sweet all the same. The bird then flew off to find new accommodation. But it definitely gave the beard a 5-star review on TripAdvisor.
