Narcissist Bird Loves to Stare at Its Own Reflection

When wildlife expert Caitlin Raynor spotted a bird mesmerized by its own reflection in a window, she thought that people might be worried about what it was doing. So Raynor posted a little note that reads, "I'm a Bush Stone Curlew. I'm fine. I just like to stare at myself in the window."

Little did Raynor knew that she'd be launching the bird into Internet stardom, with images of the "Narcissist bird" rattled 'round the web. But Raynor said that the behavior was actually quite normal for this bird species.

"They're primarily nocturnal so they're not used to seeing their reflection," she told the BBC, "They're not being aggressive. They're just fascinated with the 'other bird' in the reflection."

If I were that cute, I'd stare at myself that much, too!
