We definitely thought that this bird was a goner. During a practice run for the Monaco Grand Prix recently, the bird was chilling on the track and taking it easy when a Formula One car started to approach it. The car got closer…and closer…and closer…and closer…and…LOOK OUT, BIRD!!!!!!!

Somehow, the bird then pulled off the impossible. Just as it was about to get turned into a pancake, it did a backflip, got the hell out of the way, and lived to fly another day. We have to admit: We're impressed! How in the world did this bird learn how to do that?
