PORTLAND, Ore. -- It wasn't a protestor interrupting Bernie Sanders at a campaign rally in Oregon.

Sanders visited Portland on Friday ahead of the state's primary. He was ugring voters to show up at the polls when a fine feathered friend disrupted the show.

Sanders compared the bird to a dove, calling it a symbol for world peace.

The bird is already a hit on social media: the hashtag #BirdieSanders is trending on Twitter and Facebook.
