White-Rumped Monjita Tries to Hitch a Ride in Brazil

A determined white-rumped monjita was intent on hitching a ride in the Pantanal region of Brazil, recently shared video shows.

Sao Paulo native Natalia Cara de Medeiros said she was in car with a friend of hers a couple of years back when the bird landed on the bonnet of a car and wouldn’t move.

“When it sees the car, it goes and stands in front of the windshield, which one would imagine is because of the reflection,” Medeiros said. “Then it turns its back on the windshield as if it were simply waiting to catch a ride.” Credit: Natalia Cara de Medeiros via Storyful
