Woman Takes Desperate Measures To Free Bird From Car Only To Learn He Has No Plans To Leave

Share

We humans are social creatures. To varying degrees, and in different ways, we depend on the company of others to help enrich our lives.

Sometimes, of course, you can have too much of a good thing. For instance, we’ve all experienced that one companion who simply won’t take the hint.

Maybe it’s that Super Bowl party guest who gets a little too comfy on the couch, and proceeds to consume all of our leftovers. Or occasionally, it’s that super-enthused female friend who keeps prattling away on the phone, after we’ve politely tried saying “goodbye” for the fourth or fifth time.

In some situations, the source of our exasperation may not even be an actual human being. In one recent video gaining popularity on social media, for example, it’s a single-minded bird.

The short snippet has been shared on the Nat Geo WILD Instagram feed, and on other platforms as well. It features a friendly-looking feathered friend, casually hanging out on a woman’s dashboard.

The unsuspecting woman attempts to courteously “excuse” the bird from the interior of her car. “Hey bud, whatcha doing?” she inquires, gently trying to lift what appears to be a calmly sociable robin.

That’s when things get a little surreal, and pretty amusing too. Let’s just say the flustered fowl cries “foul,” in no uncertain terms.

Mr. Bird answers with a perturbed squawk, and then perches himself on the open window ledge. “You gonna, uhhhh, gonna fly out?” the woman asks uncertainly — prompting a tiny-but-tense, wing-flapping tantrum.

The bird’s slightly disconcerted human host then decides to try raising her power window. Her obstinate pal enjoys his brief elevator ride, yet stubbornly stays put.

“I don’t know what is wrong with this bird,” exclaims the increasingly ruffled narrator, poking her persistent “wing man” right in his pudgy belly. This has no effect whatsoever, and he stoically gazes into the distance.

Finally, the woman gives up and tries hollering. “Get out!” she shrieks repeatedly, sounding a little bit birdlike herself.

But Mr. Bird just sits there serenely, obviously disinterested in any sort of “rescue.” Meanwhile, his hapless new friend dissolves into helpless laughter.

It may be somewhat reassuring to note that robins are traditionally thought to symbolize good luck, wisdom, and patience. It’s never 100 percent specified that this particular bird is truly a robin — but it’s abundantly clear the woman in this video already has patience in spades.
