A tiny bird made a surprise appearance on the podium of a Bernie Sanders rally in Seattle Friday evening, getting a standing ovation from the crowd and spawning a series of #BirdieSanders memes.

As Sen. Sanders (I-VT) touted his campaign platform for college access the crowd noticed a bird lingering near the stage. Sanders worked the bird’s presence into his riff to the delight of the crowd, which erupted in cheers when the bird landed on his lectern.

Twitter, of course, had its fun with the moment, with users coining the hashtag #BirdieSanders to post their memes.
