I was going to take a video of the bird sitting on a branch doing something reminded me about a display. Singing while holding out the wings like the bird was trying to impress a bird so they can make babies. Anyway, I was making the video and a motorcyckle approached. And of course, spotting a white man on the dust road and they just had to stop to check out was was going on and the video turned in to sh#t.
