Live television is pretty unpredictable. And what could come your way while presenting the news live is hard to gauge and it’s not always serious. Take for instance when KFMB anchor Nichelle Medina was preparing to take a break before going into the next segment, her ‘next guest’ decided to crash in and extend some air time.

For Zoo Day, Medina and her co-host Eric Kahnert were teasing the upcoming Zoo Day piece on their show, when a scarlet ibis from the San Diego Zoo made an early entrance. The exotic pink bird named Sophie swooped in and stole the show by sitting on Medina’s head! But being a seasoned presenter, the news anchor maintained her calm and played it really cool on live TV, while her co-anchor couldn’t stop laughing.
