This poor bird was just trying to enjoy the D-backs game when a bunt almost landed on it

When a bird decides to take in a baseball game, things are generally pretty festive -- they'll take a quick stroll, maybe start a rally or even give a quick interview for their adoring fans. 

But the ballpark brings its own set of dangers, as Randy Johnson can attest, and one bird almost learned the hard way during Tuesday's Padres-D-backs game. Our feathered friend was just minding his own business, getting a good look at the action from the Chase Field, when all of a sudden -- LOOK OUT, INCOMING BUNT:

Luckily, Paul Goldschmidt quickly pounced to the ball and snagged it just in time -- probably to throw to second to get the lead runner, but also to save the bird from certain destruction.
