Woman spots what she thinks is a happy bird in the forest – then suddenly realizes her mistake

Nature never stops amazing us. For many people, being outdoors feels like a therapy for both their body and mind. The breeze, the freshness the trees fill our lungs with, and the stunning colors make for an incredible experience that help us relax and gather strength for the remaining of the week.

Kym Beechey, an Australian woman, loves spending her days outdoors. She appreciates the beauty of the nature and never misses a change to take photos of stunning sights she often stumbles upon.

One day, she walked through the forest, and she came across what she believed to be a baby tawny frogmouth (a bird resembling an owl).

She quickly took her phone out to take a photo of the sweet bird. However, when she zoomed in, she realized it wasn’t a bird at all but a banksia pod, often-funny looking pods that grow out of banksia trees, and are rather unique in their appearance.

These trees grow predominantly in south western Australia, but you can also find them in New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Their pods are often compared to pine cones.

The pods burst open, often in the heat of forest fires, and that’s the process when they release their seeds.

Realizing her ‘mistake,’ Kim had a good laugh about it and decided to share the photo of what she believed to be a bird for other to see.

Did this deceive you as well?
