It's a bird... It's a plane... No, it's really a bird zooming down the 101 Freeway and keeping pace with the speedy traffic.

Charlie Patnoe posted this video on Reddit that he recorded on his dashboard on Monday morning. You can see the feathered adrenaline junkie cross over the freeway wall around the 0:08-minute mark, and then zip in front of cars, and do some very dangerous lane changes, we might add. Patnoe estimated that the daredevil was going at about 60 mph.
