BAKERSFIELD, Calif., March 16 (UPI) -- A California weather forecaster's morning broadcast was interrupted when he was "attacked" by a "giant bird" -- or just a regular bird that flew up to a camera.

A clip from the broadcast shows Aaron Perlman, the morning weather forecaster for KBFX-TV in Bakersfield, beginning his morning forecast Monday with a shot of the "mostly clear" skies on the station's sky camera.

Perlman barely finishes uttering the word "clear" when a bird flies in close to the sky camera, making it appear as if he is under attack from a giant avian.

"A bird! I've been attacked!" Perlman says while jokingly falling to the ground.

Perlman and others in the studio can be heard laughing at the brief encounter.

"It's like those B movies, and the giant bird came and attacked me," Perlman says through more laughter.
