This video comes to us from Malta, where a Honda rider minding his his own business suddenly notices a flash of bright neon yellow flitting towards him. Realizing it was a parakeet, he pulls over and the bird gently lands in his outstretched gloved hand.

The rider gently hands the bird off to a passerby, who claims the bird is his. That may have been a misunderstanding, as a slow-motion look at the video shows the bird flying out of an adjacent doorway before the man approaches. Still, we have to admire the rider’s deft touch in catching the runaway parakeet.

    That was beautiful. I hope the misunderstanding at the end got cleared up.
