The bird was nesting inside a fire department connection, which is used by firefighters to provide water to a building’s sprinkler system in case of a fire
The important water pipe is connected to the building’s automatic fire sprinkler system and can be used by firefighters to connect hose lines in case of a fire.
The fire department are then able to pump water into the sprinkler system at a high pressure to put out the fire.
The amusing footage was shared on YouTube, where one viewer poked fun at Jonny, saying that ‘he clearly knew something was in there’.
Speaking about the footage, Jonny said: ‘I bmx a lot and on my travels today, I happened to see a bird fly right into the pipe on the side of a building and when I went to go investigate, it popped out and startled me.’
