PORTLAND, OR (WKOW) -- A small bird stole the show at a Bernie Sanders rally.

The democratic senator was in the middle of addressing supporters in Portland, Oregon when a small bird flew on stage and then onto the podium. 

The crowd was a-flutter in cheers.  They gave the bird, nicknamed Birdie Sanders, a standing ovation.

Sanders said of the bird, it's a dove, asking for world peace.
