"It brought me to tears," she wrote on Facebook. "Taking it as a sign from Jack."

Robinson also posted a photo of the same bird landing on her shoe.

She wrote on Facebook in an earlier post that Jack passed away from brain cancer when he was 4 years old, and Robinson had visited last week on the third anniversary of his death.

Although she continues to grieve Jack's death, she said she hopes the video of her encounter with the bird going viral will raise awareness for childhood cancers.
