'Once-in-a-lifetime experience!' Hiker records as stunning birds perch on his hand
A hiker in Burlington, Canada, filmed as several stunning birds perched on his hand to take some seeds.
Ugo Troccoli commented: "I’ve hiked this area several times and fed birds by hand but northern cardinals are generally timid except for this particular day!"
The filmer added: "This male cardinal had mustered up the courage to grab some seeds from me, and keep coming back for more! This hadn’t happened before and hasn’t happened since. It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
This footage was filmed on August 23.
