Default MOS'* bird story...

I saw this *cough*hijack*cough* in another thread, thought I'd post my story.

Read a story about a car wash operator suspecting one of his employees of stealing from the coin operated car wash. They each had a key, so he figured that one of them was opening it and taking a handful of coins every day, because he was noticing a loss. So he set up a surveillance cam to catch the thief red-handed.

When he watched the video some time later, he watched as a tiny bird, like a swallow or warbler landed on the coin return, then jumped inside and came back out with a couple of coins in his beak! They located the nest on the roof of the building, and when they looked in it, there was over $1,000 worth of coins in it!!

I'll have to find the video again, it was the funniest thing I've seen in a bit!!

Yep.... I saw that too I can't imagine what the owner of the car wash had to have been thinking when he finally saw where all of his money was going.

That is too funny. I need to train a bird to get me some money from the Brinks truck when they open the doors.

Saw stills of that a long time ago, the birds involved were starlings, damned, nasty, dirty, little native-song-bird-killing imports from Britain...
They found almost $17,000 in quarters on the roofs of the carwash and surrounding buildings
