Pedestrians on the busy streets of Beijing, China, were stopped by a very clever bird who knows how to handle its money by energetically putting all collected coins inside a piggy bank.
According to the Daily Mail, many bystanders saw the adorably motivated bird collect coins from their hand and drop it inside its piggy bank using an equally cute, tiny beak. However, this little feathered animal doesn’t just collect any kind of money. It turns out that the picky bird only accepts coins that are worth five yuan ($0.76) or higher.
One of the astonished audience members jokingly suggested to the owner to train the bird how to accept much higher bills, like 100 yuan ($15.13), to maximize their profit. But it seems like this isn’t going to happen anytime soon.
A pedestrian tried to hand the bird paper money to put it inside its piggy bank, but to no avail. It ignored the man, who jokingly replied with, “I’ll keep it.”
