It can either be magical or scary when a flock of animals swarms around you.
This little boy named Logan, who has autism and a developmental delay, was far from afraid when it happened to him. In fact, it made him completely ecstatic!
“This is the best day of my life!” he says as flocks of beautiful, colorful birds come to greet him and nibble on the treats he offers them.
The special moment is so precious. It’s impossible not to smile (so if you’re having a bad day and need a pick-me-up, I highly recommend you watch this video!).
Everyone with autism is different, of course, but people on the spectrum tend to do incredibly well with animals. They are often more at-ease in their presence, and studies have shown that interaction with animals can even improve their sociability.
Well, I can’t speak for everyone on the spectrum, but Logan seems to be doing pretty well. As his mom says, he’s the “bird whisperer!”
Check out the adorable interactions in the video below!
