Sneaky bird scares dude so bad he probably pissed himself

You never know what you're going to find in an air vent.

It’s easy to underestimate birds. Just like us, they’re in their own world, casually moving along sidewalks, looking for food, and flying around. But sometimes we witness just how vicious a bird can be—how it can surprise us when we least expect it and leave us absolutely terrified.

Dylan Higgs heard something strange going on in his air vent, and when he checked it out, he discovered that a bird was stuck in there. But when he went to check the vent again—prepared to put the video on social media because a bird stuck in an air vent equals is gold), he couldn’t seem to find it—until it pops out from the side, scaring the living daylights out of Higgs.

Seriously, the face of that bird says it all: “What’s up? Why are you lighting up my spot? What are you looking for? You see this beak? It’s not just to attract other birds — this is a guaranteed phone-screen destroyer. I will end you, bro.”

The bird obviously spared Higgs’s life, and the Internet is definitely having a good time with the video, too.
