A hawk who got scared by Hurricane Harvey landed itself inside the taxi and drove out of the storm only to surprise the cabbie.

The 45-year-old cab driver, William Bruso in Texas was startled to find that a Cooper's hawk has taken shelter inside his taxi through the open window on August 27.

Low pressure and high winds had terrified the victim of the storm as the bird sat on one hand of the Bruso. Taxi driver William named this bird as "Sgt. Hurricane Harvey." The cab driver had also left the windows open in case the bird wants to fly back, but it didn't, as his frightened eyes tell us why.

Have a look!

Hawk which turned the heads.

The cab driver said in an interview, "It was a very cool experience, I felt very honoured that [the hawk] chose to hunker down with me, and was so well-behaved, better behaved than my cousins who come here and wreak havoc," reports NY Post.

In a short interview, William said, "It was a magical experience. It is a bird of prey, a natural born killer in its normal environment. But this was not a typical situation."

The bird wasn't hurt when driver found it.

The cab driver took the bird to his home. As you could see in the picture, it's visible that the bird felt way too comfortable at the driver's home. 

It is the video in which William shared this with the world.

There's a lot which has been said about humans, how they're destroying the mother nature and killing the species which are not as powerful as them. But, this Cooper's hawk finding itself comfortable under the same roof with a human tells an entirely different story.

The internet fell in love with courage and bravery of this smart bird.

People in huge numbers started showing their love and affection for the bird. Especially on Twitter. Let's have a look at how the tale of this bird's survivor has inspired many around the world.

NBC reported first that:

A man in Houston claims that a hawk is not leaving his cab as Hurricane Harvey has hit the town hard.

A Twitterati said:

Indeed it's true, look closely into the eyes of Cooper's hawk, and he may tell you everything without uttering anything.

Frank Heinz IV shared:

The managing editor of NBC-DFW tweeted that the bird looks exhausted and he may have come inside the taxi to take the shelter.

Isn't that hawkward?

In a comment to NBC News, a Twitter user Jack Freeman replied back with the image of Cooper's hawk as if it is asking, "Did you see what's happening out there?".

As the world is, Jack Freeman's comment turned into yet another online meme.

Another user replied back to Jack while pretending to be the same hawk and said, "Dude, get in! Come On, Get In! GET IN! Shut the door! Shut The Door! DUDE, SHUT…THE…DOOR! Let's go! Let's Go! LET'S GO!".

Fortunately, this tale of Sgt. Hurricane Harvey the hawk had the happy ending.

The taxi driver, William Bruso shared this final update of the bird showing how a woman from the TWRC Wildlife Center in west Houston came to rescue Harvey, and how he [cab driver] let the bird go with hope in his heart that it'll receive the best care in the world.


The internet is amazing, and there's no end to such tales of bravery, humanity and courage.


That's all, folks!
