A Houston taxi driver ended up with a unexpected passenger Friday when a hawk swooped into his auto to take refuge from the approaching Hurricane Harvey.

Looking for a safe place to wait out Hurricane Harvey, a bird of prey found its target and flew right into the front seat of a taxi.

William Bruso came back to his taxi after stopping to stock up on food and supplies for the storm, when he realized a Coopers hawk was sitting in the passenger seat of his auto. "He doesn't know what's going on".

Bruso attempted to get the bird out of his vehicle, but had no luck - it refused to fly away.

When William Bruso got out of his auto to take video of the storm on Friday, he says a hawk swooped into the vehicle and hunkered down in the passenger seat. He goes on to add, "He just kind of hopped on in and doesn't want to leave". Videos later showed the bird to be perched on the door of the parked auto, still refusing to fly away.

Harvey stayed in Bruso's home overnight, but a worker with the Texas Wildlife Rehab Coalition was seen scooping the bird up on Saturday and taking it to a shelter for professional care.
