Wild bird chases Swedish reporter

Wild Bird Chases Swedish Reporter
A reporter in Sweden was chased and attacked by a bird, and it was all caught on video. Here's "Fox & Friends."

'A reporter in Sweden attacked by a wild bird. Look at that. The bird chases it for a while and then turns on the camera guy. They were both finally able to get away.'

The hilarious video is just starting to get a lot of attention, but we found the video on YouTube, where it was actually published back in 2011.

Regardless of how old the video might be, it's just as funny today.

A writer for Softpedia said: 'By the end of the clip, [the reporter] gives up and gets in his car, proving once again that humans are the smarter and more easily scared species.'

Thankfully, the reporter and photographer were able to make it out of that sticky situation unharmed. No word on how the bird, though.

Take a look at the full video:

Wow, I learn something new every day. The capercaillie is the largest wood grouse and is the size of a turkey as well as looks like and acts like them. They were native to Scotland, but the people liked them too well and exterminated them. They've been reintroduced since then from Sweden.

Having said that -- "RUN, news reporter! RUN!!" LOL

Thank you so much for identifying that bird! It's tail, when spread out, looked like a turkey's; but the rest of his body plus his "face" were so different. Veryyy interesting!! :-)

He is just looking for love! That's why he is strutting and puffed up the way he is. He is displaying his wares, looking for a nice lady bird to start a family with.

We have an Amazonian Parrot. Her name is "Gidget"! Sometimes I very simply refer to her as the "Demon Bird From Hell!" Nuff said...

I once got too close to a woodpecker nest in a tree trunk. The mother chased me all over the yard. My husband was laughing so hard he couldn't stop. Needless to say, I now never get too close to any nest.

They were probably too close to a nest and he was protecting his family.

Exactly my thinking! At least the guys didn't try to retaliate by hurting the animal like some ignoramous in this country ! And please, no negative response thank you.

I doubt it since it is a male and they have nothing to do with rearing. They do protect their stomping/drumming grounds however. After the sex they are gone.

They got exactly what they deserved. That bird was clearly showing aggression. It was in no mood to play and its body language clearly said "Stay away!" Only an idiot would approach after seeing that display. Stupid men.
