As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

We said peak hour not beak hour: Toucan photobombs traffic camera in Brazil

A group of traffic controllers could be forgiven for thinking they were about to be attacked by a giant toucan when they saw this footage.

A traffic camera was performing its duties of monitoring highway conditions around the city of São Paulo, in Brazil, when the curious animal made a guest appearance.

The recently released video shows the bird trying to eat the camera before giving it a hard inquisitive look.

Luckily, his actions didn’t lead to any traffic disruptions in the city, which at the time was preparing to host several games during the World Cup.
