June 13 (UPI) -- A pair of sandhill cranes in a Florida neighborhood were caught on video frolicking in sync to Ed Sheeran song.

Ilene Karlsberg-Gerstein said she was driving in Clermont when she stopped to take video of the two cranes playing on a resident's lawn.

Karlsberg-Gerstein said she was surprised to realize the birds appeared to be dancing in sync to the song playing in her car, Ed Sheeran's "Perfect."

Her husband, Bill, posted the clip to Facebook, where it quickly went viral.

The couple said cranes have been spotted in the area before, but their behavior in the video was unusual. Commenters suggested the apparent "dance" was a courtship ritual.

"Some of the comments I've gotten are that with all the negativity in the world and all the bickering, this was just something really sweet," Karlsberg-Gerstein told The Gainesville Sun.
