"BirdieSanders" was trending on Twitter Friday after a bird landed on the Democratic presidential candidate's podium at a rally.
Sanders first noted the bird when it landed near where he was speaking. He looked down toward the ground and said, "Now you see, this little bird doesn't know it ..."
But before he could finish his thought, the light brown bird flew and perched on his podium.
"I think there may be some symbolism here. I know it doesn't look like it, but that bird is really a dove asking us for world peace," Sanders said after the bird flew away. "No more wars."
