It’s tough to make out what species the baby bird is but it sure likes bluegrass. Lead singer Josh Williams managed to keep the song going and the crowd sure appreciated the unexpected guest star in this video shot almost a year ago at the Doyle Lawson Bluegrass Festival in North Carolina. If bluegrass isn’t your thing the fun starts at the minute-and-a-half mark of the video.

As for the bird? No worries – it was adopted and cared for by a veterinarian in the audience.
